Below is a glossary of agricultural terms and definitions developed to help website visitors understand with the technical, scientific or otherwise unfamiliar terms, acronyms and definitions used here. Since we are the pioneer and leader of the managed agricultural production (MAP) model, a few terms may not be readily found elsewhere. Like all other parts of this website and all our publications, this list of terms and definitions will grow as our clients' needs become more sophisticated.
Epicob Agriculture is an agricultural production service. We grow crops and raise livestock on our clients' behalf. Therefore, please note that the funds you invest with us are NOT a deposit that's available on-demand, a purchase of equity or debt. Although comprehensive agricultural insurance is available for field crops and livestock in our custody, your deposits are not insured by Bank of Uganda or any other financial institution. As with all other investments, your portfolio with us may gain or lose value as commodity and/or input prices fluctuate, or as a result of adverse weather events that are outside our direct control. Please review our literature or interact with our Customer Services Group via live chat, phone or email for more information on how agricultural production and investing works.
