ABOUT US DEMONSTRATIONS RESEARCH BREEDING

 

Demonstrations

Since the best crops are produced with high quality seeds, we use selected varieties for our demonstrations. SEVIA engages local sector professionals to share and disseminate information, knowledge and farmer experience.

 

For instance: we provide technical information about proper nursery and crop management and improved pest and disease control. With our feet on the farmers' field, we also present innovative technologies, for water, soil and fertilizer management. After the harvest the vegetables should find their way to the markets. Therefore better handling is indispensable. Demonstrations and field days are carried out all over the country. we focus on vegetables that are popularly cultivated in Tanzania, like tomato, cabbage, African eggplant, kale (sukuma wiki in Swahili), and other crops. After demonstrations we invite the farmers to share the innovations.
