Seeds

A farmer’s greatest triumph in their farming journey is in good soil preparation, sowing good quality seeds, managing costs and reaping a bountiful harvest. We therefore source and select our seeds for both green house and open field production from renowned, leading and globally respected seed producers and breeders who meet all international seed testing standards. 
Our hybrid and open pollinated seeds portfolio is carefully chosen, tried and tested locally to suit the soil and growing conditions in Uganda. Additionally, we have our professional team of agronomists advising farmers on the best seed varieties suitable for their regions.
The effects of climate change have interrupted sowing and harvesting patterns across Uganda. In an effort to help farmers better adapt, we are continuously working on providing high quality hybrid seeds that are well adapted and capable of dealing with changing climatic conditions and emerging diseases.
In recent years, drought has become a major challenge for our farmers in Uganda who are dependent on rain fed agriculture. To mitigate this, we supply hybrid vegetable and fodder seeds that are drought tolerant. 
Our seeds have added value and benefited small and medium scale farmers, export farmers as well as Non- Governmental organizations (NGO’s) and Community Based Organisations (CBO’s) working with communities towards sustainable farming.
