What you need to know:

  • For the farmers, 2021 was a roller-coaster year. The sector weathered several ups and downs throughout the year including poor rains and accumulated interest in agriculture loans.
  • Stephen Lwabukadde, a crop farmer experienced the issues firsthand. 

When things don’t work out in a given planting season and the crops wither and die perhaps due to a long drought, this should not be sufficient reason for a farmer to lose hope and give up. It could be another disaster like a flood or a pest invasion and disease outbreak.
