Description

The objectives of this webinar are to harvest best early generation seed (EGS) business models to sustain quality seed production and supply using expert knowledge; and Explore best business models fit for recovery from COVID-19. While the science of discovery has made significant breakthroughs in developing new varieties and agronomic practices, few of these technologies have made their way to smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa. The science of delivery has still a long way to go as a large proportion of farmers is using poor quality seed of old sub-optimally adapted varieties.
