Ugandan farmers are being urged to exercise proper grain management practices to improve the quality of grain produced in the market.

According to Paul Ocuna a team leader at the Eastern Africa Grain Council, averagely 70% of all the grain that is produced by small holder farmers in the country doesn’t meet the required standards and hence is rejected on the international market.

He made the revelation during a training on warehouse operations and management organised by Eastern Africa Grain Council in partnership with UNBS and Makerere University.

Speaking during the same training, Hakim Mufumbira who is in charge of food and agriculture standards at UNBS noted that although a significant part of grain supplied by Ugandans doesn’t meet the required standards, strides are being made towards improvement.
