Local hybrid maize seed production project yields promising results

A collaborative project between Kukobila Nasia Farms Limited (KNF) and CSIR-Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (CSIR-SARI) has made significant strides in promoting local hybrid maize seed production and marketing in Ghana. The project, funded by the Ghana Skill Development Fund, has trained 25 young men and women in hybrid maize seed production and marketing, resulting in improved knowledge and skills among participants.

The project review meeting held at the KNF Nucleus Farm in Savelugu Municipality highlighted the project’s progress and challenges. Participants expressed satisfaction with their enhanced understanding and practical experience, while representatives from relevant organizations emphasized the need for trainees to apply their skills for economic benefits.

The project aims to bridge the gap in local hybrid maize seed production, enhance productivity, and promote sustainable agricultural practices. KNF has committed to engaging the trained individuals as out-growers to produce sufficient quantities of hybrid maize seed, creating direct employment opportunities and economic benefits.

The partnership between CSIR-SARI and KNF ensures ongoing technical support, promising a sustainable growth of the hybrid maize seed sector in Ghana. This initiative has the potential to be a game changer for job creation and food security in the country.
