New app to make high-yielding rice varieties more accessible to Tanzanian farmers

 Rice Today   |  

The launch of SeedCast-Tanzania, a digital appp that aims to strengthen rice seed demand and supply information by closing the gap between seed traders and farmers, is expected to encourage the country’s farmers to adopt higher-yielding varieties and speed up varietal replacement.

The app acts as a hub connecting farmers, seed suppliers, and policymakers, fostering much-needed collaboration in the Tanzanian seed chain. It provides verified data about where farmers can find quality seeds, how much they cost, and how far they need to travel to get to them.

The app’s analytics will also serve the national need to match seed production with demand.
