SACAU and Access to Seeds Foundation (ATSF) hosted an Access to Seeds Index workshop on 28th-29th November in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The two-day workshop was attended by some of the member organisations from the SADC region.
During the workshop, lack of access to information, high costs of seeds and lack of seed laws were identi ed as some of the issues affecting the access of good quality seeds by smallholder farmers.
SACAU CEO Ishmael Sunga advised that “Access to this seed at the right time, at the right cost, at the right place and with the right quality is one of the key drivers of productivity.”
