(D) RECOMMENDATIONS/WAY FORWARD
i. The issue of considering priorities of the district should be adhered to by NAADS.
ii. The push system of procurement of inputs by NAADS should be urgently addressed by NAADS in this financial year 2018/2019
iii. Procurement of inputs according to Sub county demands should be taken as a priority.
iv. In Kisoro District average land holding is about 0.25 acre and to have a meaningful transaction in tea planting, you need at least 04 acres of land in this respect other crops like Irish potatoes, oninos, beans,maize should be procured for those with small land.
v. Supply of inputs out of season should stop forth with this F/Y 2018/2019
vi. Provision of 02 Vehicles to coordinators of Bufummbira South and East constituencies would facilitate the coordinators in smooth running of operation.
vii. Procurement of inputs should be decentralized to District level to save on transport cost.
viii. Fuel Allowance should be increased since fuel price increased also.
