ABSTRACT The topic of the study was NAADS program and farmers' wellbeing in Sembabule district a case study of Lugusuulu Sub County aimed at establishing the relationship between NAADS program and farmers' wellbeing in Lugusuulu sub county Sembabule district. The study was guided by four specific objectives that is; to find out the demographic characteristics of farmers; to find out the levels of NAADS programme implementation; to find out the levels of farmers' wellbeing and also to find out the relationship between NAADS and Non NAADS farmers' levels of wellbeing in Lugusuulu sub cotmty Sembabule district. The hypothesis of the study was that, there is no difference between NAADS and Non NAADS farmers' level of wellbeing at 0.05level of significance. The study used a case study design because it presented an opportunity to conduct an indepth investigation of the relationship between NAADS program and farmers' wellbeing. Besides this, a case study was chosen because the NAADS program is not in Sembabule district alone, it covers the whole of Uganda and the study could not be conducted in the whole country. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used in both data collection and analysis. This study found out that NAADS farmers were better off than Non NAADS farmers in Lugusuulu Sub county Sembabule District as regards to income levels and no significant difference in terms of livestock levels kept. It was also revealed that there existed no difference between NAADS and Non NAADS farmers' seasonal crop yield levels. The study concluded that since NAADS farmers have higher income levels than Non NAADS farmers, NAADS program has contributed towards farmers' wellbeing through boosting their income levels and therefore NAADS fanners are better off than Non NAADS farmers although more efforts are still needed to improve on some sectors like crop production and livestock levels. This study thus recommended that, the government should supply good quality seeds in order to boost on the levels of crop yield per season; the District NAADS coordinator should ensure monitoring and supervision of the program implementation processes so as to achieve the program objectives.
