  • Product Description

The study set out to establish the relationship between Climatic variability and pineapple growing in Uganda. The specific objectives of this study were: to find out the extent to which Climatic Variability affected pineapple yields in Kangulumira Sub-county in Kayunga District; to find out some of the measures put in place to adapt to or mitigate Climatic Variability in the study area; and to find out the challenges of adapting to or mitigating Climatic Variability among pineapple growers in the study area. The study employed a case study design, qualitative approach and was descriptive in nature. The study involved a sample of 32 respondents. Findings revealed a positive relationship between climatic variability and the pineapple growing in terms of quality, which were measured by the size and appearance which are determinants of price and the overall incomes to the pineapple growers. It was also found out that pineapple growing on the other hand can promote climate change because the most commercially grown pineapple variety in the area, the Smooth Cayenne does not do well under shades. Forests are cleared to create space for pineapple growing.
