Producing quality seed to improve farming output
SHAREAfrica Zambia grows certified seed to supply to the farmers on the Outgrowers Scheme as well as to sell to a wider market to raise income to support the cost of the farm.
The farm mainly grows legumes – groundnuts, soya, and beans. New varieties appropriate to regional conditions are continually being tested.
Facilities for shelling, sorting, bagging and storing are in place and new storage continues to be built as the farming outputs expand.
All seed is certified by the Department of Agriculture. The farm is a NFP division of SHAREAfrica Zambia. All surplus income is used to develop the farm as well as support other SHAREAfrica Zambia projects.
