ABSTRACT This study was designed to investigate the effect of road infrastructure on agricultural output in Kisoro district central division. Focus was put on trying to establish the relationship between road infrastructure and agricultural output. The study employed the use of correlation design to establish the nature of the relationship. The validity and reliability of research instruments was established and data was collected from 117 respondents selected from central municipality using the simple random sampling method. To analyze the data, the Pearson product moment correlation statistical tool was used with the aim of establishing the relationship between road infrastructure and agricultural output in Kisoro district, central municipality. This formed the basis of the detailed analysis and conclusions and recommendations. The findings revealed the existence of insignificant effect of road infrastructure on agricultural output. However, there was a weak positive linear correlation between road infrastructure and agricultural output. On the basis of the findings, the researcher made the following conclusions; there is insignificant effect of road infrastructure on agricultural output and there is a positive relationship between road infrastructure and agricultural output.
