Tomato Ansal f1 might be a game-changer for Ugandan farmers

The tomato industry in Uganda has been growing steadily over the years, with farmers adopting new varieties to boost their yields and increase their income. One of the tomato varieties that has had a significant impact on farmers’ income in Uganda is the Tomato Ansal f1. The Ansal f1 is known for its high yields, disease resistance, and excellent fruit quality, making it a popular choice among farmers.

This tomato is a hybrid variety developed by East-West Seed Company. It is a determinate variety, meaning that it grows to a specific height and then stops. This makes it ideal for small-scale farmers who have limited space.

Uganda has seen an increase in tomato production to 37,654 tons in 2021, growing at an average annual rate of 4.07%. The tomatoes have attracted exports from countries such as South Sudan and Europe, among others.

However, despite the high yields, farmers need to exercise caution during the post-handling of the Tomato Ansal f1 to ensure that they get the most out of their harvest. This variety is prone to cracking and bruising, especially during transportation, storage, and handling.
