Uganda: Garlic could spur household incomes, cottage industries

Agricultural scientists have noted that growing garlic could become an important source of household incomes as well as agro-cottage industrialisation, if it is given specialised technical attention.

Representatives of the ministry of Agriculture, National Agricultural Research Organisation (Naro) and private sector made the recommendation during a fact-finding mission to a garlic-seed producer, Shatwa Mixed Farm in Kayunga.

MAAIF's seed inspector, Divine Nakedde told Dr. Twaha Kakooza, the director, garlic is a vital source of lucrative agricultural business as seed and for food and herbal-medicinal uses.
