Africa can take the seed industry forward with partnerships and collaborations

At the International Seed Federation’s World Seed Congress in Cape Town, South Africa, Lukeshni Chetty, SANSOR’s general manager, sits down with Seed World Group’s Shawn Brook to dive into how Africa can take the seed sector forward. According to Chetty, it’s been more than two decades since the last World Seed Congress was in Africa — this year’s Congress made it possible for more SANSOR members to connect with global seed companies. “We needed to showcase the value of seed,” says Chetty. “That is the story here — the value of seed and its critical importance to the entire agriculture value chain.” Make sure to listen to hear how Chetty believes partnerships with seed companies in Africa can help propel the global seed industry forward and into the future.
