Enhancing better sustainable crop intensification through institutions in Uganda
Formal and informal Ugandan institutions contribute collaboratively to upscale sustainable crop intensification (SCI). Such interrelationships among key players in the system often provide the support required to ensure service provision in the Ugandan potato and rice cropping systems.
Previous research has described SCI as increasing the production of available farmland while minimizing the pressure on soil without jeopardizing production capacities in the future. Yet, sub-Saharan African countries have performed poorly in agricultural productivity, despite recovering strongly from the stagnation of previous decades. One of the major causes has been attributed to weak and inefficient institutional arrangements.
