The Uganda SIMLESA program initiated a project to improve maize–legume farming systems by addressing downside production risks associated with climate variability and commodity value-chain constraints. The overall objective of the project was to improve livelihoods of maize–legume producers by addressing pre-production, production and post-harvest challenges. Key activities of the project entailed evaluating conservation agriculture-based sustainable intensification practices (CASI) through on-farm trials with farmer groups, and demonstrating and promoting those proven to be effective under specific conditions. With the aim of promoting performance through synergies, crop– livestock–household–soil–weather relationships were evaluated for specific CASI practices: minimum soil tillage, soil moisture retention and soil fertility enhancement. The project, coordinated by the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) in 2012, was implemented in two rural districts: Nakasongola and Lira.
