Building an Economically Sustainable, Integrated Seed System for Cassava in Nigeria
Help Nigerian producers reach this potential through developing a commercially sustainable cassava seed value chain based on the purchase of quality seed by farmers provided by vibrant and profitable village seed entrepreneurs and basic seed production linked to cassava processors. Seed businesses will provide healthy seed of more productive cassava varieties leading to adoption of new varieties to improve productivity and food security, increase incomes of cassava growers and village seed entrepreneurs and enhance gender equity.

Enhancing Yam Breeding for Increased Productivity and Improved Quality in West Africa
More than 54 million tons of yam are produced in Sub-Saharan Africa annually on 4.6 M Ha. Over 95% of this production lies in a five-country “yam belt” that includes Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, and Côte d'Ivoire. Yam productivity is negatively impacted by declining soil fertility and diseases and pests associated with intensive cropping systems. Genetic improvement can contribute significantly to addressing these challenges and seizing opportunities for expanding the markets. The project will focus on breeding white yam (Dioscorea rotundata) and water yam (D. alata) species.
