Bukedea residents reap big from Speaker Among’s drive to commercialise farming


 A significant number of people in Bukedea District has realised improved livelihoods through the agricultural projects supported by Speaker of Parliament Anita Annet Among. 

Speaker Among has in her capacity as Bukedea Woman MP injected personal resources to encourage commercial agriculture in the district. Part of this has seen her purchase of tractors for farmers’ groups in the district as well as injecting cash in the buying of inputs and seed capital for various groups. This has enabled beneficiaries to realise a momentous shift in their gains.

“We have realised that once you plough your garden by tractor, it somehow remains moist for quite some time even when the sun hits. That is partly how I managed to get a better soy yield,” Pastor Charles Ongole, a resident of Kolir Village in Kareu Parish, Kolir Sub-county, said after recently harvesting seven bags of soybean from one acre piece of land.
