November 16, 2015
Location: Iganga District, Uganda
The Ikulwe project in Uganda’s Iganga District demonstrates the efficacy of Farmer Participatory Research (FPR) as an innovative, collaborative development model to address poor crop productivity due to insect pests, crop pathogens, and low soil quality. FPR combines farmers’ needs and experiences with the technical knowledge of scientific researchers to improve crop production and resource conservation capacity.
