One of Zambia's biggest agricultural challenges is a lack of availability of high quality early generation and certified seed in the right quantities and at the right time for smallholder farmers. Good Nature is addressing this issue by expanding its seed outgrower network. It is also expanding its private extension agent network and providing soil analysis and creating an organic fertilizer blend specifically targeted at smallholder legume seed farmers. Limited supply of foundation seed is a key bottleneck in the legume value chain in Zambia, so Good Nature is also developing its own foundation seed farm that will allow it to deliver high quality foundation seed in a timely manner to its outgrowers.
Outcome: Good Nature will add 5,200 smallholder farmers to its outgrower network and train an additional 80 private extension agents.
