Seed production is important for ensuring food security. However, to be effective, a viable partnership between researchers, farmers, and the private sector is needed. Seeds of staples such as cassava, cowpea, maize, soybean, and yam and other crops need to available at the right time and of the right quality.

High quality seed and planting material of improved varieties from IITA’s breeding programs and private partners can be multiplied rapidly using novel technologies, and provided to industry and farmers throughout Africa.
