Agroforestry is being regarded as an effective, low-cost means of minimizing the
degradation of cultivated land and of maintaining or even increasing the productive capacity of
agricultural ecosystems.

constraints among small-scale farmers in Butta sub-county, Manafwa district in Uganda.

of multistage stratified random sampling and systematic random sampling. The study population of
this research involved two categories of respondents that are the household and extension officers
from the sub-county. The quantitative data collected from the household heads were analyzed using
Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20.0 and Microsoft office excel 2013.
