1. Timely planting of Maize, Simsim and Soya beans due to availability and easy access to the seeds. 2. Increased income to each member by 10% from the sale of the produce due to collective marketing and improved quality as a result of postharvest skills and equipment provided. 3. Increase of acreage of Maize, simsim and soya beans from average of 1 per household to 2 due to availability of seeds, extension service, and market.
This project is going to address the problem of lack of access to quality seeds by breeding and processing the seeds locally. The seeds will be produced by the member, processed and stored at the Village Seed Bank for easy access. Proximity to the members and the community makes seed access more available.
