Products & Services
Agricultural Extension Services Agronomics & Conservation Practices
Services to farmers and seed growers-which include farmer education on a variety of fields including seed bulking, seed multiplication, seed selection, small-scale seed bank development, among others. We also offer assistance on crop pest control as well as sustainable crop production and environment restoration.
Agricultural Consultancy Services We are the best
which cover a wide range of agrarian areas including seed and soil conservation, market analysis, crop production, among others. Actually, these services represent the core principals upon which our values and operating goals are derived.
Seed/Plant materials and market links We are skilled
which involves outsourcing for markets to farmer's products and supply of seedlings. Similarly, as part of our general activities we also encourage farmers and farmer groups to interact more often not only to share ideas but also to broaden their networks and learn new ways of seed and biodiversity preservation.
Youth Mentorship and Internship programs We are knowledgeable
This is perhaps one of most significant programs to date owing to its vast potential. We believe that the future of plant and animal biodiversity lies in today's youth and that is why we are relentlessly reaching out to more youth groups and individuals to train them on the importance of seed and biodiversity preservation.
Training Ecological Farming Modern Farming & Conservation Techniques
Agro-ecological Agriculture requires conservation of natural resources (land, water and air) by ensuring no environmental pollution. Seed Savers Network trains farmers on Organic Bio-pesticides formulation, Vermi compost and liquid manure making in order to minimize use of external inorganic farm inputs.
Development of Training Materials Agronomics & Conservation Practices
In order to effectively accomplish our duties, we continuously subject our instructors to rigorous field exercises and workshops. It is from these exercises that we develop our training materials ranging from manuals to video tutorials and many more. Similarly, such material is used to train farmers on the best seed preservation methods. In this case, we utterly value the contribution of such materials in our daily efforts towards seed and biodiversity preservation.
