Florence Nambozo Mayoga the Sironko District Woman Member of Parliament wants government to set up demonstration farms at Sub County level.
Nambozo says if demonstration farms are set up at Sub County levels, it will be easy for farmers to acquire expert training from Sub County extension workers on better methods of farming. She says many farmers lack knowledge on good farming practises which affects their productivity.
Janet Nafiye the agricultural officer for Sironko District welcomes the proposal by MP Nambozo saying the limited funds allocated to the agriculture department cannot enable the opening of such farms at Sub County level.
Nafiye says there is one demonstration farm in the entire District at Mutufu government prison.
