Market access and its effect on citrus fruit production in Uganda

Abstract: 
Sustaining success in productivity-based agricultural growth depends on expansion of market opportunities. However, limited attention has been directed towards marketing strategies of Uganda’s horticultural produce which is one of the fastest growing non-traditional export sectors in the economy. This study aims to assess the domestic, regional and international marketing of citrus in Uganda.
Soutenir la réussite dans la productivité basée sur la croissance agricole dépend de l’expansion des opportunités du marché. Cependant, une attention limitée a été orientée sur des stratégies de vente du produit horticole de l’Ouganda qui est l’un des secteurs non traditionnels d’exportation le plus rapidement croissants dans l’économie. Cette étude vise à évaluer la commercialisation sur le plan local, régional et international de l’agrume en Ouganda.
