The paper outlines the state of youth participation in the agriculture sector in Uganda, noting, most specifically, that while absorbing a large part of the working population, the sector is operating highly inefficiently, mostly owing to the effects of subsistence farming and engagement in the sector as a last resort or interim solution while other economic pursuits are aspired to.
