Diversification & Collaboration across boarders

The company is developing its own maize varieties by identifying the most productive maize hybrids from CIMMYT, adapted to the local agro-ecology. The company is planning to produce 500-1000 tons of maize hybrid seeds per year, during the next three years, as well as improved forage seeds, with high quality protein. In order to diversify and modernize the production and sales of quality seed, the owner is seeking partnership and joint ventures.


The company predicts improved agricultural production in maize, sesame, soybean and vegetable seeds through intensive and widespread use of technology.This will allow for an expansion, diversification, boosting the productivity and competitiveness of all stakeholders,which will result in increased income among the regionally and nationally poor, through enhancing labour productivity.
