Oilseed crops, including groundnuts, soya, simsim (sesame)
and sunflower, have been produced in northern and eastern Uganda as subsistence and commercial crops for eight
decades. The sector was first built around cotton, groundnut
and simsim, flourishing in the 1950s and 1960s when sunflower and soybean were also introduced, but declining in the
1970s and 1980s when imported palm oil took the majority of
domestic market share
