|Abstract: ||In East Africa (Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania) agriculture sector employs over 80% of the work
force and export earnings from the sector constitute a major part of the national budgets.
Subsistence farming is the major source of food. However food shortages as well as negative
impacts on several sectors of the economies have been attributed to the seasonal weather variations
among other factors. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the Long-Range
prediction potential of seasonal rainfall as derived from SST modes of the neighboring oceans.|
