The seed sector in Sub-Saharan Africa is dominated by informal supply systems with farm-saved seeds accounting for approximately 80 percent of planted seeds, compared to a worldwide average of 35 percent . This informal seed supply system is characterized by on-farm production of self-pollinated non-hybrid crops and a distribution system limited to barter trade and sales in local markets. Improving smallholder farmers’ access to new high-yielding varieties and hybrid crops requires better coordinated marketing efforts and expanded distribution systems.
The deregulation of seed markets in the early 1990s, under the International Monetary Fund/World Bank–initiated Economic Structural Adjustment Programs ended state-owned monopolies in seed production, marketing, and distribution. As a result, multinational companies and domestic SMEs entered these newly opened markets each serving different segments. Because of the highly heterogeneous nature of smallholder farmers and the diverse agro-ecological conditions typical of Sub-Saharan Africa, the large multinational companies target more-attractive market segments such as large-scale commercial farmers. SME seed companies primarily target niche markets that comprise mostly smallholder farmers. Recent research indicates that smallholder access to improved varieties has worsened in a number of countries following the reform.
Small-to-medium sized seed companies primarily target smallholder farmers, support programs that improve performance within those companies will result in timely availability of affordable, quality, and appropriate agricultural biotechnologies to Africa’s rural poor. However, emerging seed companies have limited financial and managerial resources and are often obstructed by complex and bureaucratic legal frameworks. As infants in the industry, small-to-medium-sized domestic seed companies need assistance in establishing a solid financial base and developing management capacity.
FREZHAR AGRO-SCIENCE is supporting the Seeds of Development Programme (SODP) a collaborative initiative between EAST AFRICAN FARMERS,.,ISRAEL AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERS & KIINI INITIATIVE NGO OF KENYA.
Objectives and Activities:
A critical component in strengthening the private seed sector requires the establishment of a comprehensive Business Development Service (BDS) program that coordinates capacity building, network creation and research targeting SME seed companies. This BDS program should guide strategies by SME seed companies to improve efficiency, growth, and service delivery to smallholder farmers. The SODP aims to alleviate rural poverty through improved access to appropriate seed varieties.
The specific objectives of SODP are:
- Build management capacity of small to medium-sized local seed companies in order to improve their market delivery systems for poor farmers;
- Create a network of private seed companies that will encourage the flow of products, ideas, and resources to improve efficiency;
- Conduct research on the seed industry that will guide strategies of seed companies serving resource-poor farmers and inform public policy.
Livestock genetics (semen) supply to peasant farmer
Although the livestock genetics industry still “mainly consists of Small and Medium Enterprises”as the sees itself, “its influence on livestock production is enormous and vital to the agricultural sector.”
Very little independent data have so far been published on the livestock breeding industry and the ongoing developments. The industry has not only dramatically revamped itself by developing new technologies and forming new companies but also changed its name, from “breeding industry” or “artificial insemination companies” to “livestock genetics”. The following provides a first overview over three main business areas: poultry,pig and cattle.
Consumers are usually not told which breed of chicken, cattle or swine have produced the eggs, milk and meat offered in the supermarkets or the butchery shops. They should get interested, since they are contributing to the development of a global genetic monoculture. Meat processing factories and factory farms want uniform animals. Hardly noticed by the public, a concentration process is taking place not only in livestock production and processing, but also in the livestock breeding industry.
With the partnership of Israel genetics company, Frezhar Agroscience intends to bring to farmers high quality milk producing cows and Toggenburg goats and make them accessible to our farmers here in Kenya at very affordable installment payments.
One of the many challenges for Africa is to use new developments in biotechnology to reduce poverty and create wealth in sustainable and equitable ways. Many of the problems constraining Africa’s development require solutions tailored to local, national and/or regional circumstances. Some solutions can be developed from existing knowledge and technologies. Many, however, require new knowledge, new discoveries and innovation — by Africans, for Africa.
Agriculture is the mainstay of most people’s livelihoods throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The agricultural sector provides food for people living in rural and urban areas. It is the main source of employment. Foreign exchange earnings for most countries come from the export of agricultural commodities. A thriving agricultural sector provides the engine of growth for broader social and economic development.
Its aim is to support African countries develop and apply bioscience research and expertise to help resource-poor farmers secure their assets, improve productivity, increase their market opportunities and raise income.

- Core competencies and equipment;
- Market-oriented agro-biology research programs.
Objectives and Activities
The main objective of Frezhar agro-science is to significantly improve food security for resource-poor farmers in the near future by improving African orphan crops and livestock with the help of innovative modern bioscience technologies. Specifically, the focus will be to produce research outputs that can be developed into new products and technologies for measurable impact on African agriculture and benefits to resource poor farmers. Achieving this outcome requires strengthening the research capabilities of African scientists and institutions.
Based on this main objective, frezhar agro-science will work to:
- Promote scientific excellence by bringing together a critical mass of scientists drawn from national, regional and international institutions in modern facilities where they can undertake cutting-edge research. The goal is to help solve some of the most important agricultural development constraints affecting the health and well-being of people in Africa.
- Create and strengthen human resources in biosciences and related disciplines in Africa
- Increase access to affordable, world-class research facilities within Africa
- Serve as a platform to forge partnerships with other biosciences laboratories and with those entities responsible for product development and delivery, within Africa and globally
Since 2009, frezhar agr-science have worked together to improve crop yields and income levels of resource-poor Kenyan smallholders. The work has focused on modern agriculture knowledge, conservation agriculture practices and facilitating access to market.
FREZHAR Agro-science is supporting the expansion of a smallholder project focused on providing training and extension services. Currently this projects has been established and farmers,youthsand women are requested to register themselves at a fee of ksh.250/-inorder to gain benefit of technological training transfer,certified seeds and fertilizer loans and agricultural expertise from out Israel counterparts in modern farming practises. The goal is to target 30.000 farmers across the country by end of the year. .
The initial emphasis has been to train farmers in Conservation Agriculture and support them on proper use of crop protection products, access to markets, and appropriate technology in a market-led extension service.
The objective is to provide a model for non-subsidized market-led extension services. These are geared towards a complete solution to the challenges faced by smallholders trying to achieve higher yields and income. The focus is on subsistence farmers and early commercial smallholders in agriculturally underdeveloped regions of Kenya.
The project methodology uses eight modules to achieve a global solution to the smallholder challenge. These vary in relative importance according to actual needs.
Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including:
- living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly referred to as gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beautiful environment within the landscape.
- natural elements such as landforms, terrain shape and elevation, or bodies of water;
- human elements such as structures, buildings, fences or other material objects created and/or installed by humans; and
- abstract elements such as the weather and lighting conditions.
Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them accordingly.
Soil testing has become an important tool for assessing soil fertility and arriving at proper fertilizer recommendations. It’s also a valuable management aid for studying soil changes resulting from cropping practices and for diagnosing specific cropping problems.
Soil testing provides an index for the nutrient availability in soil and is a critical step in nutrient management planning. Soil sampling technique, timing of sampling and type of analysis need to be considered for accurate results. The biggest problem in the effective use of soil testing is proper and representative sampling. Proper soil sampling will provide accurate soil test results and reliable nutrient recommendations.
The following information is offered to answer special questions concerning soil sampling. Further information and guidance can be obtained by contacting your fertilizer dealer, private laboratory or crop advisor.
When to sample
Cultivated fields for spring seeding should be sampled after October 1. These fields can also be sampled in the spring, but time may be limited then. Fields for fall-seeded crops should be sampled one month before seeding. Forage fields for seed, pasture or hay may be sampled after September 1. Problem soil areas may be sampled anytime. Frozen and water-logged soils should not be sampled because of the difficulty in obtaining a representative sample.
Where to sample
Soil variability is a major concern when deciding how to collect a representative soil sample. Soil samples submitted for analysis should be representative of the field or portion of a field. Therefore, by sampling from an area of the field where yield is typically average, soil test results should come back with an average representation of the field.
Identifying areas that are representative can be difficult without a first-hand knowledge of the field. If the person taking the soil samples does not take the time or have the knowledge required to take a sample in the appropriate location, the results can come back somewhat unrepresentative.

Random soil sampling is the traditional approach that works for uniform fields with little variation. The managed random sampling technique samples from areas identified as average production areas. This approach is different from random sampling, which provides an average of all cores taken throughout your field. Managed random sampling is recommended if you cannot identify a dominant production area on your field.
Benchmark sampling is recommended for fields with more variability (hills, pot holes, etc.). Benchmark sampling reduces the inherent variability of a field by reducing the area sampled. A small area (generally about ¬ of an acre) representing the majority of the field is sampled the same number of times as in random sampling. This is the reference area from which fertilizer recommendations are made.
The benchmark site should be marked with a global positioning system (GPS) or other means so that one can return there for subsequent years’ sampling. Sampling from the same area will reduce sampling variability and create a better picture of year-to-year changes. Creating more than one benchmark is recommended if you cannot identify a dominant production area on your field.
