East Africa’s largest organic fertiliser factory is set to open in the eastern district of Tororo in October.  Sitting on a 600-acre piece of land, the Guangzhou Dongsong Energy Group-owned industrial complex in Tororo District, will produce about 300,000 tonnes of organic fertilisers annually, making it the biggest organic fertiliser plant in East Africa.

Ms Jane Guo, the group chief executive officer, said the fertiliser production section will be launched on October 9 with the firm expected to roll out full production in June next year.
“We are on course. Different sections have been given to different contractors and so far the progress is good. ,” she said during a press briefing.
The fertilisers, she said, are designed specifically for Ugandan soils to boost agriculture in the country.

  • The plant will produce about 300,000 tonnes of organic fertilisers annually, making it the biggest organic fertiliser plant in East Africa.
  • Construction work is already going on at the industrial park, with the first batch of equipment expected in the country for installation late this month

Chemical fertilisers
Uganda imports approximately 100,000 tonnes of chemical fertilisers annually, which Ms Guo says, is dangerous to the soils. Apart from the fertilisers, the factory will also manufacture construction materials such as steel, glass and unbaked bricks.
