This book aims to contribute knowledge on the mixed farming system in Africa, particularly Uganda by analyzing the profitability and investment of Wakhati Farm Ltd. Though it is not a representative of the typical smallholder mixed farming system in Uganda due to lack of proper data from such farms, it gives a better insight on profitability and inter-relationships of various enterprises on the same farm in terms of input use. It is amazing how such farms utilize inputs from one enterprise to another and vice -versa. This not only cuts costs and increases revenue but also diversifies the farmer's outputs as well as minimizing risks of total loss in case of un certainties that are beyond the farmer's control. This finding can be a basis for policy decisions in mixed farming systems and as a bench mark for comparison with other farming systems globally.
