Agricultural business ideas in Uganda.

Agriculture has always been known as the background of Uganda no wonder up to now, Uganda still benefits a lot from the agriculture sector than any other business sector in the country.

The agriculture sector is so wide so if you are looking for some fields in the agricultural sector to invest your money in, don’t worry we get you covered.

Agricultural business ideas in Uganda

Agricultural business ideas range from crop farming, animal feed manufacturing, food vending and so much more.

If you feel like you have an agricultural-related business idea you want to start here in Uganda, there is an already available variety of these business ideas that can all be started here in Uganda.

So now without wasting time, let us look at some of the most profitable agricultural business ideas in Uganda.

Fruit Growing

First and foremost is the fruit-growing business idea.

Fruits like mangoes, avocadoes, oranges, passion fruits and many more have a very high demand in Uganda and abroad.

Venturing into fruit growing can be one of the best businesses to start in the agricultural sector.

Nursey Bed Operator

Many people like farming but few people like propagating and growing plants in nursery beds to the desired size that one can transplant into a big garden.

By focusing on nursery beds, you can grow coffee, tea, and other different types of trees and plants and sell them later to farmers and other business sectors.

Poultry Farming

Third, in our list of agricultural-related business ideas, we have poultry farming.

No small business in Uganda is as profitable as the poultry farming business.

With little startup capital needed and high market demand for poultry farm products, starting a poultry farming business is a sure win for any entrepreneur who starts it.

Juice production

Uganda is blessed with so many fruits, you do not need to import many fruits from abroad in order to make quality juice.

So with the juice-making machinery in place, starting up a juice production business can be considered as one of the business ideas.

Your juice can be for mangoes, oranges, lemons or any other fruits and vegetables.

Though there is some competition in this sector, you can still make good money out of it if your juice has something unique about it to your competitors.

Livestock feed manufacturing

Are you well conversant with the right proportions needed to make animal feeds, the ingredients required to make food for different categories of livestock?, then you need to start up the Livestock Feed Manufacturing business.

You will make feed for cattle, goats and even poultry and sell to farmers both locally and abroad.

There is a ready market for this business.

Fish Farming

Fish is not only delicious but also nutritious. To invest in fish farming needs some training but if done properly, it is a business worth every money invested in it.

You can do fish farming near a lake, river, water stream or even pond.

The whole of Uganda enjoys fish, so lacking a market for your fish is never a possibility here in Uganda.

Mushroom Farming

Mushrooms have seen their market increase rapidly here in Uganda due to their use in making locally made nutritious drinks like “Kituuzi” and many more.

Local breweries have made mushrooms one of the main ingredients needed to manufacture drinks properly.

So if you have a mushroom garden, you are soon becoming a hub for these local drink makers.

Apart from drinks only, mushrooms can be sold for food too., since they have a lot of nutrients in them.

Start Producing Honey

Honey, is the sweetest liquid in Uganda. Honey is the main product of bees and also you can get wax from the beehives too.

Raising bees has become one of the popular businesses in Uganda and the rate is still increasing rapidly.

By choosing the right beehives, positioning the hives well and giving the bees the required necessities, you too can start up a hiney production business.

Banana Plantation

Bananas have become the staple food of many in Uganda and also other countries.

With over 90% of all Ugandan districts planting bananas, there is a high love and market for bananas.

Countries neighbouring Uganda like Sudan do not grow bananas as compared to how Uganda does yet they enjoy eating bananas too, so they provide a market for bananas in Uganda.

Pig Farming

Last but not least is the pig farming business.

I can not say much about this business but it is so profitable. If you can get around 12 piglets from one pig in a year, you really have no excuse for staying poor here in Uganda.
