Brachiaria Grass is introduced to Masindi, Uganda

Collins Mutai, one of BecA-ILRI Hub’s research associates, recently visited Masindi District, in Uganda to introduce Brachiaria grass to the farmers as an alternative, and more resilient forage option. Masindi District lies in the cattle corridor of western Uganda. It presents a great opportunity for the Climate-Smart Brachiaria project to demonstrate the impact at a farm level.

He met with Kabagonza Kassim, Vice-Chairperson and Secretary for Agriculture-Masindi District Local Government; Morris Agaba, a Brachiaria farmer and former ILRI scientist and Mr Wobusobozi a farmer from the district. Morris Agaba has Brachiaria grass on ten acres of his land and uses his farm to demonstrate the feasibility of Brachiaria to interested farmers who often adopt a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude towards new technologies.

 

Mr Agaba’s experience with Brachiaria grass on his farm qualified him to be a great collaborative resource, to help Collins engage Mr Kassim, a member of the district’s local government, on Brachiaria grass establishment, preservation and use.
