Factors and Practices Affecting Nutrient Management in Eastern Uganda

E. Nankya; A. Wasukira; R. Gidoi; Pande J.; L. Owere
In order to appreciate nutrient management in agricultural systems, there is need to investigate how they are managed and practices affecting their availability. This helps to make informed decisions on better nutrient management strategies among different farming systems. A survey was conducted in Bududa, Mbale, Namutumba and Budaka districts of Eastern Uganda to identify factors and practices affecting proper nutrient management in the region. Data was collected using structured questionnaires and focus group discussions. Results revealed that demographic characteristics such as Age, Gender, Education level, House hold size and marital status of respondents had great influence on how nutrients are managed across target districts. Results also showed that land size significantly influenced nutrient management practices, a case of Namutumba where a larger land size led to production of a lot of biomass that attracted burning of residuals by farmers on-farm. This eventually causes risks for environmental degradation and soil health. Another factor was utilization of animal droppings by farmers; where results revealed that most of the animal droppings are just applied directly in the field or disposed-off as waste. This was majorly observed in Mbale district. This also has environmental implications and on soil and crop health. Level of fertilizer use is another factor revealed under this study, where 10% of the farmers where using fertilizer but the problem here was that most of the farmers do not know which fertilizer combinations to use, which poses a risk for application of excess fertilizers a case of Nitrogen where most of the farmers in Bududa and Mbale where applying NPK+Urea as a combination. This may lead to eutrophication of aquifers. The method of application of the fertilizers was also not properly done. Generally, there is need for more sensitization on proper nutrient management in the region in order to reduce environmental degradation and boost productivity.
