Gloria Otieno, Ronnie Vernooy. (17/4/2019). Upscaling Best performing varieties of Sorghum for seed and production and commercial products to generate incomes for farmers.
Due to climate change and diseases, farmers are in need of new and better performing varieties for food security and for incomes. Through various projects varieties that are drought and disease tolerant have been pre-selected. These varieties need to be disseminated in ways that can stimulate their use at the same time increasing incomes of smallholder farmers especially women. Some of these crops like sorghum are considered to be women’s crops in some cultures/communities. Engaging private sector for both seed and product value chains is one of the ways in which we encourage these crops to find their ways to consumers for food and nutrition security and livelihoods.
