Farmers' association says 3.8% budget allocation to agriculture is not enough
The proposed allocation for the agricultural sector in the next budget for the financial year 2017/2018 is estimated at Shs846.7 billion up from Shs823.4 billion.

The proposed allocation for the agricultural sector in the next budget for the financial year 2017/2018 is estimated at Shs846.7 billion up from Shs823.4 billion.
