CRS - BASICS VIDEO CLIPS
VSE Component of BASICS Project | Enhancing Sustainable Cassava Seed Systems
CRS has been implementing the Village Seed Entrepreneur (VSE) component of the BASICS Project in Benue State since 2016. VSEs were engaged and onboarded in 2016, 2017 and 2019. Capacity building and mentoring support have been provided to the VSEs on the project in collaboration with partners. VSEs have established and managed seed fields, harvested and sold certified seeds (stems) of improved cassava varieties to farmers within and outside the State consistently for three seasons (2017, 2018 and 2019).
