Factsheet Potato Uganda

Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. Situated on Lake Victoria, it is bordered by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to the west, Rwanda to the south, South Sudan to the north and Kenya to the east. The potato market in Uganda is characterised by a deficit in production, making Uganda a net importer of potatoes. In food production Uganda has a comparative advantage. Within East Africa, Uganda has the biggest size of arable land (68%). The water resources (rivers and lakes), and favourable rainfall patterns allow for flexibility in production and multiple yields per year.
