Coffee farmers in Bubyangu Sub County in Mbale district have successfully finished a three weeks training in coffee rehabilitation.
Simon Mutambo the agricultural officer of Bubyangu Sub County says that they trained coffee farmers on how to dry and store coffee in a clean place to improve on the quality such that they can attract good prices.
He also said that the current low price of coffee has come as a result of poor handling of coffee right from picking in the garden to middle men due to its low quality making it to be bought cheaply.
Mutambo also said that farmers were given skills and knowledge on how to pick coffee berry, how to wash after formatting, drying them on a mat in a clean place among others
Abudu Busito the LCIII chairperson of Bubyangu Sub County also urged farmers to put in practise the skills they have acquired such that they can improve on coffee quality in Bugisu sub region.
He also confirmed that after the training they donated items like CAN fertilizer and chemicals to coffee farmers as a sub county.
Muzamilu Wazama one of the farmers who benefited from the training expressed his happiness and says that this is going to help them to improve on coffee quality after improving on hygiene during drying as trained.
