Reacting to climate change and high levels of malnutrition, the Seeds and Markets project (SAMP) is helping farmers to grow a wide range high quality seeds which can beat drought and form part of a healthy diet. Now in our 7th year, we bring farmers together and assist them to own and manage businesses which grow the types of seeds they want. These seeds are quick growing drought tolerant maize, as well as beans with added minerals such as zinc and iron. We also help farmers to set up businesses which buy produce from local farmers to supply shops in local villages and towns. An important part is also getting women involved in deciding which crops to grow and earning money from selling produce. SAMP also assists governments to improve seed quality control systems and supply ‘early generation’ seed for farmers to plant.
