Baseline survey report on Nutrition and Income indicators of indigenous vegetable growers in East & Central Uganda, March 2015

Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : PAEPARD-CRFII UGANDA: African Indigenous Vegetable project
Description : Executive summary

 

This report contains findings from a baseline survey conducted in March 2015 to establish some of the impact monitoring indicators this project entitled “Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda” seeks to deliver on. The indicators were captured by interviewing a total of 147 households drawn from the central and Eastern regions of the country where vegetable growing is quite prominent. The districts included Buikwe, Wakiso and Mpigi in the central region as well as Luuka, Jinja and Mbale in the Eastern region.

Among the key findings of this survey are the following:

§  The most common Solanaceae vegetables grown in the project are include Nakati (S. aethiopicum), Ntula (S. aethiopicum; Gilo group) Egg plant (S. melongena)

§  Nakati was found to be more prominent in the central region particularly in Buikwe and Wakiso whereas Ntula and Gobe (Vigna unguiculata) were more prominent in the Eastern region especially in Luuka and Jinja.

§  At present, households consuming of green leafy vegetables on a daily basis stand at 50%, 44% and 23% in Buikwe, Wakiso and Mpigi districts, respectively and at 50%, 63% and 58% in Luuka, Jinja and Mbale districts, respectively.

§  Approximately 61% of all the households interviewed obtained their green-leafy vegetables from own production while 5% purchased them.

§  In terms of vegetable sales in the central region, Nakati (Solanum aethiopicum) dominates among households followed by Bugga (Amaranthus blitum) then Ntula (Solanum aethiopicum; Gilo group) and then Doodo (Amaranthus sp).

§  Regarding vegetable sales in the Eastern region, Sukuma wiki (Brassica oleracea) dominates followed by Doodo (Amaranthus sp) then Ntula, egg plant and then the rest.

§  By district, Nakati and Nakati seed as well as Bugga are the most sold vegetables in Buikwe district with approximately 67%, 67% and 42% of households engaged in selling them, respectively.

§  In Wakiso district, Nakati dominates in sales (81% of households) followed by Bugga (67% of households) whereas in Mpigi district, Nakati dominates (32% of households) followed by Ntula (23% of households).

§  In Luuka district, Sukuma wiki is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (50% of households) followed by Doodo (36%) then Ntula (29%) whereas in Jinja district, Doodo is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (70% of households) followed by Sukuma wiki (50%) and Tindoli (50%).

§  In Mbale district, Sukuma wiki is the most dominant vegetable sold by households (79%) followed by Ntula (39%).

§  In general, Nakati contributes about 19% of the total revenue obtained from sale of vegetables.

§  In Wakiso district, the mean earnings from the sale of Nakati were established at about Ugx 1.5 million whereas in Buikwe district, the mean earnings were estimated at Ugx 180,000. In Mpigi district, the mean revenue from the sale of Nakati was established at Ugx 58,000.

§  Regarding access to information, majority of households in the study area were found to be accessing mostly information on crop and livestock husbandry as opposed to information on markets.

§  Households interviewed mostly access information through friends or relatives (39%) and then also through Radio (30%) and Extension agents / NGO workers (30%)

§  In regards to Radio listenership, CBS FM Radio Buganda is the most listened to radio station in central region followed by Radio Simba. In the Eastern region, NBS seems to dominate followed by Baba FM and Smart FM.

§  Concerning the preferred time to listen to radio, households in Buikwe preferred the evenings whereas residents of Wakiso and Mpigi districts preferred the evenings and mornings. In the Eastern region, households in Luuka and Mbale districts mostly preferred the evenings while households in Jinja preferred the afternoons and evenings.

Demand and Supply of African Indigenous Vegetables (Solanaceae sp) in East and Central Uganda

Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : John Jagwe, Mathew Kasozi and David Luwandagga
Description :


This report contains findings of a study commissioned by the European Union funded project entitled “Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda” which is implemented by the Uganda Christian University (UCU), together with Farmgain Africa, CHAIN Uganda and the Natural Resources Institute under the PAEPARD[1] initiative of the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa.


This study was conducted in the period August – September 2016 in Kampala, Jinja and Mbale districts and mainly focused on Nakati (S. aethiopicum), Entula (S. aethiopicum L. Gilo group) and Katunkuma (S. anguivi). Primary data was collected from several key informants mostly located in the main markets of the mentioned locations. The Holtzman[2] methodology was used in this study which involved triangulating information obtained from various key informants who are amply knowledgeable of the supply chain under scrutiny.


Some key findings regarding demand reveal that the highest concentration of AIV[3] traders tends to be found in Kampala markets particularly in Nakasero and Kalerwe markets. These two markets and to a certain extent Nakawa market handle the bulk of AIVs traded in Kampala which is the pivotal consumer market for AIVs in Uganda. It was also observed that Nakasero market acts as a “clearing house” for AIVs specifically linking supply to the other markets in Kampala except Kalerwe which is also outstandingly a big hub for AIVs. Demand for AIVs is usually stable throughout the year with observable peaks on weekends and public holidays. Traders are the main buyers of AIVs in markets especially Nakati (S. aethiopicum) followed by individuals for home consumption and then operators of restaurants and food vending businesses. An increase in demand for AIVs has been observed over the years and this is attributed to changing eating habits especially amongst urban and peri-urban dwellers. Demand for AIVs in upcountry town markets is rather still dismal and this calls for massive sensitization on benefits of eating AIVs in such locations.


Regarding supply of AIVs, Wakiso, Luwero and Mukono districts were found to be the main suppliers of Kampala markets whereas Jinja, Mukono and Kayunga supplied Jinja district markets. Though demand for AIVs in Mbale is still dismal, the current supply is mainly from Sironko and Budadiri districts. It was also observed that supply of AIVs particularly Nakati and Entula tends to reach a peak in the months ending a rainy season. This is consistent with the fact that they are mostly under rain-fed production and they tend to mature in 2 months after the onset of rains. Some farmers have adopted irrigation techniques hence are able to produce AIVs over a stretched period in a year.


Regarding profitability, retailers generally bag greater profits than wholesalers. Findings from the survey reveal that for Nakati (S. aethiopicum), wholesalers can obtain a profit of up to Ugx 45,000 per big bundle traded under normal supply seasons where as retailers can obtain profit of up to Ugx 55,000 for the same volumes traded.


For Entula (S. aethiopicum L. Gilo group), the study also observed that the green oval type commonly referred to as “local” was preferred to the whitish oval type also referred to as “exotic”. Wholesalers dealing in local Entula were found to obtain profits as high as Ugx 30,000 whereas retailers dealing in the same product were found to earn profits as high as Ugx 60,000 per 50Kg bag handled. Subsequently, wholesalers dealing in exotic Entula were found to earn profits as high as Ugx 15,000 per 50Kg bag handled where as retailers dealing in local Entula earned up to Ugx 35,000 per 50Kg bag handled.


For Katunkuma (S. anguivi), wholesaler were found to earn a profit as high as Ugx 30,000 per 50Kg bag handled whereas retailers were found to earn a profit as high as Ugx 50,000 per 50Kg bag handled.

The study concludes with mentioning constraints commonly faced in the AIVs trade which includes inadequate handling of post-harvest deterioration as well as the huge amounts of foliar waste associated with AIVs which generate secondary problems especially to the city or town council authorities in terms of waste management. Also noted as a challenge was the tendency of traders to reach closer to buyers hence resulting into hawking which contravenes regulations governing Kampala city and several upcountry towns where AIVs are sold.

Description : The Extensive Beef Value Chain (EBVC) is major source of food and cash for pastoralist households. Cash is needed to buy crop-foods to supplement nutrition from livestock. Cattle are kept over areas with unreliable rainfall and access to and use of water and feeds is critical. Animals die or deteriorate due to depletion of water and vegetation during drought episodes. Access to good markets is almost non-existent. Range lands are degrading and low benefits are causing job migration as the youth abandon production. Innovations and increased capacity and knowledge in production and value addition will lead to increased productivity, income and food securityEBVC is major source of food and cash for pastoralist households.

Project Inception Workshop Report, November 2014

Published by (name) / Mise en ligne par (Nom) : PAEPARD-CRFII UGANDA: African Indigenous Vegetable project
Description :

Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda

 

Genesis of the project

       Africa is home to hundreds of indigenous vegetables with high nutritive value, a potential that is hardly being used to contribute to the nutrition and food security of the region (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11763)

       They are grown locally on a small scale, often resistant to diseases and tolerant to environmental stresses.

       The potential of indigenous vegetables emanates from their superior adaptation to local environmental conditions without too much investment is

       However, this potential is hardly exploited in the fight against malnutrition, hunger, and poverty.

       Approximately 50% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa is affected by deficiency in vitamins and minerals (Tulchinsky and Varavikova, 2009)

       Average consumption of vegetables and fruits in E. Africa is approximated at 200g/person/day, which is far below the WHO recommended minimum intake of 490g/person/day (FAO, 2010).

       In Uganda, 21% of the population is classified as under nourished and 38% of children malnourished (FAO, 2011), mostly evident in the Northern and eastern parts of the country (www.fao.org/docrep/013/i1683e/i1683e.pdf)

       Indigenous vegetables contain vitamins and minerals which are essential in the absorption and metabolism of food ingested by the body (e.g. as β-carotene, vitamins C and E, folates, iron and calcium)

       Indigenous vegetables are also known to contain substantial amounts of antioxidants that scavenge for and bind to harmful radicals, which have been linked to ailments such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

       Indigenous vegetables improve palatability and add variety to diets, especially for the poor http://www.ifpri.org/publication/east-african-agriculture-and-climate-change-0

 

What is the problem?

However, indigenous vegetables have not been mainstreamed in the staple diets of potential consumers because of  inconsistency in supply and poor quality of products due to

a)      seasonality of supply,

b)     long distances between production areas and potential consumption centres

c)       poor post-harvest handling. 

The project funding

The Department of Agricultural Sciences, UCU has obtained support (Euro 250,000) from the EU for three years through an initiative of the Platform for African European Partnership on Agricultural Research for Development (PAEPARD) funded through Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA).  PAEPARD supports sustained partnership that mobilizes resources for priority projects that combine African and European institutional and financial resources for mutually advantageous projects.

The project entitled ‘Enhancing nutrition security and incomes through adding value to indigenous vegetables in East and Central Uganda’ is led by:

 Uganda Christian University (UCU), Department of Agricultural Sciences and Entrepreneurship (Contact persons Dr Elizabeth Kizito and Dr Michael Masanza)

in partnership with

Farmgain Africa (www.farmgainafrica.org),  a private firm specializing in agricultural market analysis, value chain development, market information systems and market linkage. (Contact person. Dr John Jagwe)

CHAIN Uganda (www.chainuganda.org),  a CBO which builds the capacity of small holder farmers through supporting formation and coordination of self help groups to effectively transition from subsistence levels to commercial farming for improved incomes and livelihoods. (contact person Dr Apolo Kasharu)

Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich, UK. NRI is world renowned for its work in supporting food security, sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction. It has vast experience working with durable and perishable crops after harvest to reduce losses, enhance financial or nutritional crop-value, and assure food safety. (Contact person: Dr Deborah Rees)

 

This project is about increasing consumption of indigenous vegetables which, despite being rich in certain essential vitamins and minerals, are not very much consumed hence leading to qualitative malnutrition mostly among children and women.  This project intends to improve post harvest handling of indigenous African vegetables in order to prolong their shelf life and hence increase their consumption in nutritionally vulnerable populations while increasing revenue of those engaged in their production.

The objectives of the project:

i.                     Better knowledge of indigenous vegetable varieties with prolonged shelflife.

ii.                   Increased knowledge about technologies and processes for prolonging shelflife of indigenous vegetables

iii.                 Better understanding of efficient delivery pathways for value added indigenous vegetables to end-markets.

 

The results expected:

R1.  Varieties of indigenous vegetables with longer shelflife and processing potential identified and profiled

R2. Appropriate processing and handling mechanisms/technologies for indigenous vegetables adopted

R3.  Appropriate delivery pathways of value-added indigenous vegetables established. Little work has been undertaken on understanding and managing the supply chains of indigenous vegetables. 

 R4.  Information sharing mechanisms on utilisation of indigenous vegetables established

 

Crops in focus:

       African nightshades (Solanum villosum and Solanum scabrum),

       African eggplant (Solanum aethiopicum)

The project team members from Uganda travelled to the UK to benchmark project activities with the European partner; Natural Resources Institute, as well as explore and investigate technologies and methods used to prolong shelf life of vegetables (both berries and leafy ones). The trip took place on 17th to 21st March 2015.

 

A number of organizations and research facilities of interest were visited and these included the following:

  •          A whole sale market for vegetables called the New Covent Garden market in Central London
  •           A Fresh produce Journal editor in Central London
  •          A vegetable Farm in Dover (Angflor)
  •          East Malling Research Centre     
  •         Natural Resources Institute

During the visits, the team got exposed to the different technologies and methods used in handling of fresh produce in Europe. Technologies appropriate to tropical Africa were also discussed. The team also met food scientists at Eastern Malling who explained the different scientific research done at the centre (texture & colouration deterioration, fruit & vegetable ripening plus the causes as well as outlining the research history.

Innovation challenge / Défis relatifs à l’innovation : Create an international network that will bring together a multidisciplinary team of stakeholders from Africa and Europe to undertake an extensive collection and characterization of plants of the Solanaceae family native to the African continent. The resources developed and information obtained through the network will have real impact in tackling major African dietary issues concerning micronutrient deficiencies but will also assemble the germplasm resources required for future domestication and breeding work, which will improve production and marketing of these traditional crops and ensure their long term value and sustainability for horticultural production
Initially identified funding opportunity / Financement initialement identifié : The European Union
PAEPARD workshops / Ateliers PAEPARD : Our consortium (AFRISOL) is a team of crop scientists and economists with specific interest in Solanaceae species. The consortium comprises of 15 members from Kenya, Madagascar, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and the Netherlands. Progress to date: So far, Michael Masanza, Elizabeth Kizito and John Jagwe have met 3 times to discuss the way forward and have been brainstorming electronically with Damaris Achieng Odeny on a concept note we would wish to finalise and submit for funding. The proposed topic we have in mind is “PARTICIPATORY COLLECTION AND MAINTENANCE OF AFRICAN SOLANACEAE PLANTS”. Issues encountered In developing a concept note, we have encountered the following challenges: - Due to the size of our consortium, it is quite difficult for us to meet and finalise the concept note. It appears all members of the consortium would wish to be present yet we are limited with funding. - Due to the limited funding, we opted not to hold the inception workshop until we source for enough funds to enable all the consortium members to meet. This is why we have not yet requested for the funds already at RUFORUM. - Some of the members of the consortium are not very active in terms of contributing ideas electronically and hence we do not feel we are making progress in getting all members to participate Support required We would request for some more funds to enable us hold the inception workshop. ________________________________________________ The consortium (AFRISOL) is a team of crop scientists and economists with specific interest in Solanaceae species.

Zimbabwe - Improving the incomes of smallholder farmers through increased access to livestock markets and through the engagement of the stakeholders in the livestock production to marketing value chain

Type of consortium / type de consortium : Research led consortium / consortium mené par la Recherche
List of partners / Liste des partenaires : **//Partner 1 (Applicant)//** Dr Charles Mutisi Dean Faculty of Agriculture Department of Animal Science University of Zimbabwe Tel: 263 4 333 880 Website: www.uz.ac.zw **//Partner 2 //** Ronny Sibanda Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV-Zimbabwe) P.O.

European partner / Partenaire Européen : No active European partner as per 23/09: - Partnership statement but no detailed description of the European partner [partner statement is not signed by head office in the Netherlands] - Second partner: University of Reading, United Kingdom. No partnership statement and no description European NGO is represented by the local representative: - Lawrence Attipoe, Country Director, Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV-Zimbabwe) - Dr Ronny Sibanda, Senior Advisor - Livestock Marketing of SNV-Zimbabwe attended the PI workshop in Pretoria. Expected input and complementarity of SNV: - The partner will be responsible for improving market access and market research Expected input and complementarity of the University of Reading: - The partner is expected to provide technical support and advice for research in Zimbabwe
Innovation challenge / Défis relatifs à l’innovation : Draw on lessons from the SNV (Netherlands Development Organization) goat sales programmes in the Matebeleland provinces of Zimbabwe to increase participation of smallholder farmers through increased sales of their livestock. In addition, the partnership hopes to evaluate the value chain of the smallholder livestock enterprises in order to improve sales, value of products, identify niche markets and organise farmers to enhance their livelihoods through livestock production.
Initially identified funding opportunity / Financement initialement identifié : EU through African Union African Union Research Grants – Open [HRST/ST/AURG/CALL1/2011] http://www.africahrst.org/stict/rgp 30/04/2011
PAEPARD workshops / Ateliers PAEPARD : - The Zimbabwe group struggled, being only 2 persons. They also focussed on marketing issues (local auction processes and farmer organisation/power). They will have to bring on board more local partners. - One of the 2 - Ronnie from Zimbabwe works for SNV, but they seem to lack the active involvement of a "European" partner (although I think Reading could take up this role through contact with Claire, although the issue does not seem that attractive for Europeans?). - They were quite vague on financing possibilities, identifying the AU call, "DFID" (which?) and "EU". There was an issue of "research" vs "development" in the question of organising farmers/marketing. ""
