National Agricultural Research Organisation (NARO) is to launch production of new castle vaccines, Dr. Otim-Nape, the Ag. director general, has said.
Otim-Nape recently told MPs on the Agriculture committee that the machines were already available in Entebbe.
"How many chickens do we lose every year? We have made a break-through and we need to be supported. We expect to launch this soon to boost the poultry sector," he said attracting applause from the committee chaired by John Odit (Erute south).
He was appearing with Hajat Janat Mukwaya, the Minister of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries, and David Obong, the acting Permanent Secretary before the committee to discuss the 2005/2006 budget allocations. Obong said sh30m had been allocated to NARO to start the production activity.
