Agriculture is the core sector of the Ugandan economy and the main employer. This sector will be the key determinant in the country’s efforts to reduce poverty and attain economic growth in the immediate years. Uganda has one of the fastest population growth rates of around 3.3%, and this itself is the principal driver for the increase in the consumption of crops in Uganda. Limited production due to major productivity constraints, owing to the unavailability of good quality seeds and proper irrigation, and lack of linkages between formal and informal seed sector (as in lack of proper seed regulation and inspection, and lack of information flow to farmers about improved seeds and production techniques) contribute the most toward restraining the growth of the agriculture sector in Uganda.

Cereals is the dominant crop type with maize, finger millet, and grain sorghum being major cereal crops. In terms of production volumes, rice, maize, and potatoes have been the crops recording the highest growth, mainly because of area expansion. Production of maize and rice is expected to further grow after the introduction of drought-resistant seed varieties in the market.
