Under the NAIP project activities, it was aimed to develop a community seed system (community seed program) for multiplication of farmer selected sweet sorghum cultivars seeds to enhance their availability and benefit the project farmers. As there are not many seed companies producing seed of sweet sorghum, a community seed program was developed to address sustainability issue of regular seed supply to farmer selected varieties after completion of the project. Hence, a community-based seed system model was developed and implemented in the project area.
