Determinants Of Soil Nutrient Balances And Implications For Addressing Land Degradation And Poverty In Uganda
A regression model was used to investigate the determinants of soil nutrient depletion in Uganda. The major determinants of soil nutrient balances are household endowments, access to markets, and extension services, non-farm activities and agricultural potential. The results suggest the need to address soil nutrient depletion using multi-sectoral approaches.
