Tractors for hire in Uganda
Mechanisation of Agriculture in Uganda is mostly done using ox plough, because it’s the cheapest and simplest method of mechanisation.
But a few farmers use tractors to open and till the land.
In the earlier years many farmers were able to use tractors to plough their fields because the agricultural system then was well managed by the Ministry of Agriculture, and they would access them.
The failure by farmers to mechanize production or to hire tractors has led to most of them growing crops on small plots of land.
And, in most cases, many plant the crops late leading to effects of drought, pest and diseases. This leads to low yields which affects food security.
