A study was carried out by seed specialists of the Overseas Development Institute (UK) and the Nkoola Consultancy Group (Uganda) in the Teso & Lango regions of Uganda, on behalf of the NARO/DFID COARD Project. The purpose of the study was to provide recommendations and guidelines for the development of enhanced seed supply in Eastern and Northern Uganda, informed by a review of current government and non-government interventions, and a field study of farmers' current practices and constraints in obtaining, storing and multiplying seed of improved (modern) varieties. The recommendations are intended primarily for the NARO/DFID COARD Project, but may also be of use for others interested in addressing seed supply issues in Uganda.
