MOReDeP – Improving rice seeds in Zambia

To make quality rice seeds widely available, it is critical to establish a functional mechanism of the production of quality certified rice seeds and the maintenance of the early generation seeds. For the purpose of the capacity development of human resources engaging in such activities, the Market-Oriented Rice Development Project (MOReDeP) conducted a training on rice seed production and rice breeding for all staff members of the Zambia Agriculture Research Institute (ZARI)’s rice research team and relevant staff members from the Seed Control & Certification Institute (SCCI).
