- 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.
