2019 SASHA Brief 15. Towards sustainable production of pre-basic seeds in Nigeria (2015-2019).

Strengthened the capacity of national partners (National Root Crops Research Institute (NRCRI) and Bayero University(BUK)) to produce and manage high quality planting material of breeder, pre-basic and basic seeds: 21 net tunnels, three screen houses, and irrigation facilities were established (Fig. 1). Established, built and strengthened the capacity of Decentralized Vine Multipliers (DVMs) and NGO partners (Kolpin and Linto farms) to commercialize the production of high quality seeds; Net tunnel and Triple S technologies were extended to partners.
