The main objective of this guide is to contribute to the planned mordenization of agriculture in Uganda, through better management of land resources. It highlights the need to develop sustainable farming practices including fertility. It provides simple reference notes to extension agents, students, NGOs and other institutions, as well as a practical guide for giving effective land management advise to farmers.
