Building an Economically Sustainable, Integrated Seed System for Cassava in Nigeria (BASICS)

The project is developing an economically sustainable and integrated cassava seed system characterized by the commercial production and sales of cassava planting material that spans the seed value chain. This project is addressing the cassava production constraint of access to planting materials through the development and promotion of commercial models for seed provision.


The objective of the project is to develop a sustainable seed system for Nigeria that is based on commercial sale of cassava planting material that is produced with high quality standards that are certified by the National Agricultural Seed Council (NASC).
