Uganda Rice Knowledge Base (URKB)
As a first step towards enabling the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in agriculture, the Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industry and Fisheries is developing national level agricultural knowledge management portals. The flagship initiative for this is development of an exclusive portal on rice., Rice Knowledge Management Portal.
URKB will serve as an information highway for sharing rice knowledge through latest ICT tools including mobile telephony. It will also help agricultural departments’ ongoing activities in reaching out to the farmers through extension advisory services, in most effective way.
