Welcome to Farm Inputs Care Centre
Farm Inputs Care Centre (FICA) Ltd was incorporated in Uganda in 1999, as Limited Liability Company but commenced operation in 2001. It was incorporated at the time when the seed industry had just been liberalized after many years of operation under monopoly of government through the Uganda Seed Project. The company’s business production, processing and marketing certified high quality seeds in Uganda. FICA Seeds has diversified its business portfolio to include other agro-related competitive products under the concept of one stop agricultural input supply centre.
Today, FICA has introduced Ugandan maize varieties officially in Kenya and Tanzania where they have been released to the market. Other varieties are under performance trials in Malawi in advanced stages of release. These initiatives are intended to create a wider market for Ugandan bred and produced maize varieties through direct export in the regional market, thereby increasing income for Ugandan farmers. The company owns no varieties, but acquires them from the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO).
Today, FICA has an assured market for its products, unlike previous years when there was a lot of uncertainty regarding demand for seed.
