CARE's work in Seed Systems

A 6 page brief on CARE's work in seeds. Across CARE’s projects, we build farmers’ knowledge base about seed varieties and farming practices that are suitable for changing environmental conditions, and raise their awareness about ways to adapt to climate change and protect natural CARE Food and Nutrition Security resources. A core focus of CARE’s work is to increase production of high-value, marketable crops using quality seeds. CARE connects farmers to extension agents, input suppliers, and agro-processors to demonstrate to farmers how best to use the seeds, ensure that they are harvesting, handling and storing their farm produce to meet quality standards while increasing productivity by adapting to climate change.
