Indigenous knowledge (IK) is a new focus in research and development. IK is not documented and degenerating over the years in most parts of the world, including Uganda. With increased campaigns to use modern farm practices for better yields, majority of the subsistence farmers cannot sustain modern practices and IK remains inferior. There is need to revive IK in modern farming so as to reduce on the effects of modern farm practices e.g. rapid environmental degradation, soil nutrient depletion, with increased occurrence of pest resistance among others. This book is based on research carried out in Uganda is a cornerstone to the revitalization of indigenous knowledge among rural dwellers. This book is catalogue of indigenous agricultural practices used in crop production by farmers in Uganda. It contributes tremendously to IK literature as it provides rare sources and practices for IK in Uganda, including, pest management, and conservation of soil fertility, manure preparation and pathways for effective dissemination of IK information.
