I HAVE A QUESTION
“In November 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic, both my parents fell extremely ill. They did not catch Covid, but acute ICU care was hard to come by locally. Global ®ional travel lockdowns eliminated alternate medical options. Family and friends stepped in to bridge the gap and it wasn't until many months later that travel restrictions had lifted enough for me to travel back home. Many people came to my parent’s aid, and I learned a number of life changing lessons. The most valuable being that the resources and capabilities available to me could be of great benefit to many. The Positrust Family has joined hands to share these privileges.” -Andrew B. Kasaija
Our role as innovators in the global digital transformation revolution, has translated into deep capabilities and insights into the benefits of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The expertise gained in open market solution delivery has allowed Positrust to develop a robust inventory of products and services. The establishment of Positrust (Uganda) Limited, provides a pathway for the opportunity to share capabilities with existing market stakeholders. Uganda's finance technology sector is young and quite vibrant. Visionaries in the market have developed compelling solutions that support the national development agenda. As a new entrant into the local Fintech ecosystem, we look forward to sharing our DLT capabilities.

Sunflower is an important cash crop in Lango, Bunyoro, some parts of Teso and West Nile regions mainly for oil extraction. With most people becoming health-conscious, the cholesterol-free sunflower oil is in high demand locally and internationally. The residues after oil extraction, the nutritious sunflower seed cake, form an important ingredient for livestock. A crop yield of 600kg/acre can provide at least 200 litres of oil. It is a high value commodity where a farmer can reap profits of about Shs680, 000 at a unit cost of Shs5, 000. Inferior varieties rake in about Shs400, 000 per acre in profits if sold as a grain.
Oil palm is a good source of income as ripe fruits are harvested every 10 days and farmers are paid monthly for their produce. Regularity of income-flow enables farmers to borrow from banks
Sugarcane is a tropical, perennial grass that forms lateral shoots at the base to produce multiple stems, typically 3 to 4 m (10 to 13 ft) high and about 5 cm (2 in) in diameter. The stems grow into cane stalk, which when mature, constitutes around 75% of the entire plant. A mature stalk is typically composed of 11–16% fiber, 12–16% soluble sugars, 2–3% nonsugar carbohydrates, and 63–73% water. A sugarcane crop is sensitive to climate, soil type, irrigation, fertilizers, insects, disease control, varieties, and the harvest period. The average yield of cane stalk is 60–70 tonnes per hectare (24–28 long ton/acre; 27–31 short ton/acre) per year, but this figure can vary between 30 and 180 tonnes per hectare depending on knowledge and crop management approach used in sugarcane cultivation. Sugarcane is a cash crop, but it is also used as livestock fodder. Sugarcane genome is one of the most complex plant genomes known, mostly due to interspecific hybridization and polyploidization
The cassava root is long and tapered, with a firm, homogeneous flesh encased in a detachable rind, about 1 mm thick, rough and brown on the outside. Commercial cultivars can be 5 to 10 centimetres (2 to 4 inches) in diameter at the top, and around 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 in) long. A woody vascular bundle runs along the root's axis. The flesh can be chalk-white or yellowish. Cassava roots are very rich in starch and contain small amounts of calcium (16 mg/100 g), phosphorus (27 mg/100 g), and vitamin C (20.6 mg/100 g). However, they are poor in protein and other nutrients. In contrast, cassava leaves are a good source of protein (rich in lysine), but deficient in the amino acid methionine and possibly tryptophan
Vegetables are parts of plants that are consumed by humans or other animals as food. The original meaning is still commonly used and is applied to plants collectively to refer to all edible plant matter, including the flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, roots, and seeds. An alternative definition of the term is applied somewhat arbitrarily, often by culinary and cultural tradition. It may exclude foods derived from some plants that are fruits, flowers, nuts, and cereal grains, but include savoury fruits such as tomatoes and courgettes, flowers such as broccoli, and seeds such as pulses.
Most of the foods we call "beans", "legumes", "lentils" and "pulses" belong to the same family, Fabaceae ("leguminous" plants), but are from different genera and species, native to different homelands and distributed worldwide depending on their adaptability. Many varieties are eaten both fresh (the whole pod, and the immature beans may or may not inside) or shelled (immature seeds, mature and fresh seeds, or mature and dried seeds). Numerous legumes look similar, and have become naturalized in locations across the world, which often lead to similar names for different species
A banana is an elongated, edible fruit – botanically a berry – produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called "plantains", distinguishing them from dessert bananas. The fruit is variable in size, color, and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind, which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe. The fruits grow upward in clusters near the top of the plant. Almost all modern edible seedless (parthenocarp) bananas come from two wild species – Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana. The scientific names of most cultivated bananas are Musa acuminata, Musa balbisiana, and Musa × paradisiaca for the hybrid Musa acuminata × M. balbisiana, depending on their genomic constitution. The old scientific name for this hybrid, Musa sapientum, is no longer used.
