Field testing a solar incubator for poultry farmers

Under the auspices of the Uganda National Council for Science and Technology, Bobo Eco Farm has been field-testing a solar incubator developed by a Ugandan innovator Mr. Kalibbala. The incubator is mainly intended to help rural farmers transit to semi-commercial poultry production. It is a two-pronged test; first to ascertain its technical efficacy in the field, and to get feedback from farmers about the equipment – price proposals, capacity proposals, and any other functional features farmers would want to see so as to feed into the final design.

On September 7th 2016, Bobo Eco Farm, Mr. Kalibbala, and poultry farmer representatives in the community held their first round of feedback meetings hosted at Bobo Eco Farm. Below is the event in pictures.
