Feed the Future Mozambique Improve seeds for better Agriculture (SEMEAR)

The project proposes to use win-win public-private partnership approaches to disseminate improved legume seeds and complementary crop management practices developed under PARTI collaboration over the past six years. Through PARTI partnerships, more than 27 varieties of common bean, cowpea, groundnut, pigeon pea and soybean were released. Most of the varieties are drought tolerant, resistant to endemic pests and diseases, have end-user preferred traits, and show significant increases in yields on farmers’ fields.

 

Goals

The overall goal of the project is to increase the adoption of improved technologies, income, and food security of smallholder farmers in identified Feed the Future zones of influence (ZOI).

 

The project has three main objectives:

 

Increase the production and supply of breeder, pre-basic, basic, and certified seeds of common beans, cowpea, groundnut, pigeonpea, sesame, and soybean in the major FTF ZOI and strengthen the national seed systems.

Scale-up and enhance the adoption of improved varieties and best management practices in the FTF ZOI using participatory approaches.

Enhance national policy dialog on seed and fertilizer supply.
