 DATA ON COMMODITY PRICES IN THE DISTRICT  2018.

 

Introduction:

 

I hereby submit to your office a report on collection of data on commodity prices in the District, carried out by DCO and CO.

 

Introduction:

 

Kyenjojo District has got many active farmers producing various crops and marketing associations. Therefore there are variations in the commodity prices of consumer goods and crops.

 

Methodology:

On spot visit at the shop premises and various markets in the district.

 

Challenges.

People are too poor to buy commodities.

There are high transport costs to markets.

There are general poverty levels at this time and no purchasing power.

 

 

REPORT ON MARKET PRICES.

The market prices were sampled from five trader markets of Kyenjojo town council market, Rugombe market, kifuka market in bufunjo sub county Kyarusozi sub county market and Kasaba market in kyarusozi town council, the prices are derived from the season of March, April, and may.

 

FINDINGS.

According to the interview with the farmers in five trader markets there are few variances in prices for example pineapples are cheap in Kasaba market as compared to other markets , this indicates that there is more production of pineapples in Kyarusozi sub county . We also realized that there is an opportunity of bulky production of maize grains in Nyankwanzi and Bufunjo sub counties.

Maize farmers in Nyankwanzi and Bufunjo sub counties lack adequate storage facilities and also don’t add value to their produce when there is bulk harvest instead decide to sell their maize cheaply either to the middle men or locally in the market.

Farmers also complained of unpredictable weather conditions like heavy rains that sometimes destroy their crops, very long droughts that cause their crops to dry from the gardens.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS.

Maize and pineapple farmers can be mobilized into producer and marketing associations which will help them produce in bulk and also market their produce as a group so that they can have a better bargaining power.

Maize farmers can also be mobilized and trained on advantages of adding value to their produce like maize grain into maize flour for better market and prices.

Government should also introduce the warehouse receipt system (WRS) this helps farmers to keep their maize in a ware house and not until the prices go high their produce will be sold.

By linking farmers directly to the markets will help eliminate the middle man from offering low prices hence protecting the farmer.

Attached is the list of produce and prices for five markets.
