The first semester (February to May 2018) RUCID/KIOF annual exchange was successfully conducted,students from both institutions traveled and had the exploration beyond the boarders.
The semester had an eye opener in Biofertilizer production for improving our soils for improved crop production, our students have a different way of looking at the microbes in their role and importance in managing the soil.
We hosted students form the Mountains of the Moon University and Makerere University for their internship exercise for a period of 10 weeks.
We hosted Professors and students from SLU University from Sweeden together with Makerere University for one day. They were able to identify suitable environment for research in organic technologies being carried on t RUCID.
