Building an Economically-Sustainable Seed System in Tanzania for Cassava (BEST Cassava)

Project goal

The overall objective of the BEST Cassava project is to enable the commercial cassava seed system in Tanzania.

Expected outcomes
  • Farmers will have timely access to quality-declared, disease-resistant, and disease-tolerant varieties in the right quantities and at a price they can afford.
  • The adoption of these superior varieties will lead to higher yields that will be a critical contributor to cassava productivity in Tanzania as cassava continues to transition from a food security crop to a commercially-oriented crop throughout the cassava producing regions in the country.
