USAID NEAT: Hybrid Seed Production in Nepal

Client: USAID

 Improved technologies such as hybrid seed are crucial to increasing productivity and enhancing food security in Nepal. It is estimated that nearly 1,600 tons of hybrid seeds are imported into Nepal from abroad each year. With the support of USAID's Nepal Economic Agriculture and Trade (NEAT) Activity, SEAN Seed Service Centre (SSSC) started working with farmers on the first commercial hybrid seed production in Nepal.
