    Agriculture remains the backbone of Uganda’s economy and contributes greatly to the household and national food security, income generation, employment creation and foreign exchange earnings among others. Yet, people in rural communities continue to practice poor farming methods which lead to poor farm yields and food shortage. NICE engages farmers to adopt proper land use practices particularly soil erosion control, organic manure application and crop specialization.

    Our Agricultural Programs in the Northern Uganda cover the districts of Apac and Kole District where a total of 700 farmers are reached, organized into 14 groups and formed into 2 associations.

    Northern Initiative for Community Empowerment has for the last 2 years been undertaking agriculture programs that are holistically planned to impart knowledge and skills but also to supply inputs like seeds and farm implements to enhance crop production
