Abstract In 2018 East-West Seed - Knowledge Transfer and the ISSD Plus program teamed up to introduce high quality vegetable seed and good, basic horticultural skills to northern Uganda.

This region had never seen horticulture extension programs, nor trustworthy seed companies, investing in farmer skills. Within 18 months 400 farmer training sites have been set up, and nearly 7000 farmers trained, over half of whom are women.

A large number of farmers adopt the much improved practices while reliable supply lines of high quality seeds are being set up. Traders are also becoming more interested in buying local produce. Farmers in this region are, most for the first time in their lives, properly learning how to productively and profitably grow vegetables.
