dc.description.abstractGrain amaranths (Amaranthus spp.) are high protein content and protein quality pseudo-cereals with potential to improve nutrition and food insecurity in developing countries (1). Grain amaranth was introduced in 2006 to Kamuli District, eastern Uganda. Initial analysis of protein content of amaranth grain from Kamuli District indicated that protein levels were low (11.7% , 12.5%)(2), compared to average of 15% (3). Based on surveys of amaranth production in the area, this study was designed to assess: 1) variability of amaranth grain yields and protein content between farms; 2) grain yields and protein content of amaranth varieties; and 3) effects of soil properties and use of organic soil amendments on yields and protein content.
