Mbarara Kakyeka Stadium Agricultural and Trade show organised by DataCapital in Partnership with UBC TV- “Farmers Basket Program” 25th October to 1st November, 2017

Data Capital International in partnership with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation Television (UBC TV); “Farmers Basket Program” has organized an agricultural Show in Mbarara Kakyeka stadium to allow agricultural value chain actors  showcase their innovative practices to the population in western Uganda. This is a planned annual program that will allow different agricultural actors to showcase best agricultural practices for improved agricultural production, productivity and value addition in the region.

This show will bring agricultural innovations to actors in western Uganda who may have not gotten chance to attend the national agricultural show in Jinja. The show will take place at Mbarara Kakyeka Stadium from 25th October  to 1st November 2017.

While government organises a national agricultural show that usually takes place in Jinja (Eastern Uganda) annually, some agricultural actors in other regions do not get opportunity of participating. This agriculture show plan therefore creates showcasing opportunity for actors in other regions especially in Western and Northern regions of Uganda.
