Soybean Research & Development in Uganda : A Case of paradigm shift in an African University (2002 -2015)

Abstract: 
Early soybean research in Uganda started in the 1930s and resulted in the release of the varieties Kabanyolo 1, Kabanyolo 2 and Congo 72. These varieties served communities in Uganda up to the 1990s when Nam 1, Nam 2 and Namsoy 3 were released and commercialized. However, the severe soybean rust epidemic seen from 1996 rendered these varieties obsolete because they all succumbed to the disease.
