NASTAG NEWS & PUBLICATIONS

Working along with NASTAG, APSP selected 21 local seed companies interested in increasing their sales and provided training on seed quality management control.

Working along with NASTAG, APSP selected 21 local seed companies interested in increasing their sales and provided training on seed quality management control. If seed producers can sustain a supply of high quality seeds, farmers are more likely

to invest in the purchasing of improved seeds. The project organized two sessions of four-day training in 2016 and 2017 on seed quality management to help seed enterprises address operational inefficiencies.

“I am now equipped with knowledge to ensure effective quality control of my seeds. I am confident my seeds will achieve maximum productivity with farmers in Ghana and the West African Sub-region for that matter.” – Godwin Agbedanu of Benzene Farms Lt.

The companies that attended the training have introduced stronger operations, administrative, and business principles into their business plans and are developing their own manuals to ensure quality control of seed production. These steps are important for seed companies to be more competitive, hold their certification status, and gain trust in their communities as reputable business partners. With the improvements that APSP is championing, Ghanaian seed companies can not only expand their local sales but to also break into the larger West African marketplace.
