Welcome to the website of the National Banana Research Program. As one of the research arms of NARO, the National Banana Research Program is mandated to carry out research on Banana in Uganda. Its goal is to enhance banana productivity and utilization through development and promotion of technologies for integrated management of weevil, black Sigatoka and nematodes.

Enhanced banana productivity will, in turn, contribute to the Uganda national goal of improving food security and household income of people living under severe poverty. The NBRP comprises a team of interdisplinary scientists and students working closely to ensure that Banana improvement is approached from a wholistic perspective. The following working groups make up the Banana research team; Breeders, Pathologists, Socioeconomists, Biotechnologists, Nematologists and Entomologists.
