Seed Equal training: Improving seed delivery using the Seed Tracker app
A training workshop of “Vegetatively Propagated Crops (VPCs) Seed Stakeholders” on accessing seeds using the Seed Tracker digital tool was held from 27 to 28 September at the IITA headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria. As part of the CGIAR Seed Equal Initiative’s Geo-Targeting Activities in Nigeria, this workshop taught seed stakeholders about knowledge on improved varieties and benefits and means to access quality seed using the Seed Tracker.
“The participants included – researchers, farmers, seed companies, extension agents, and regulatory bodies, who shared experiences and ideas and learned about demand-driven seed systems for VPCs,” said Prof. Morufat Balogun, Coordinator of the IITA’s Geo-Targeting Activities of Seed Equal. She explained that the objective was to train seed stakeholders to access seeds of vegetatively propagated (VPC) seeds using the Seed Tracker app.
