    Thank you for the good work. Well done! Iam just done with the University waiting for my final results. I offered a bachelor’s degree in Forestry from Makerere University Kampala.I have keen interest in dryland farming practices and Agro-forestry. I wonder if i can work with any on-going research projects so as to develop some experience and enrich my knowledge in such areas. I look forward to hearing from you.

    This an important area especially now that the issues of climate and clobal warming are the order of the day in the world.Desertification is increasing at an increasing rate and the only alternative to compact climate change is to look for ways cope with it. Dryland farming is an option to increase food sustainability in future. Research towards dryland forage is inorder and i wish it could spread to all arid and semi-arid regions.
