The Bill among others, will require all coffee farmers to register at no cost to them. The registration will entail capturing details of the size of land, number of coffee trees, particulars of a farmer, coffee buyers, sellers and nursery bed operators. Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) will use the information compiled to facilitate the provision of services to coffee farmers individually or through farmer groups. These services include seed and seed garden management, good agricultural practices, disease and pest management control, and harvest and post-harvest handling among others.
The Bill also seeks to budget and plan for services that are critical for coffee production and productivity. Furthermore, it addresses developments, advances and challenges that have emerged in coffee research and extension services, farmer organisations and climate change.
