Research and Development


Established in 1993, our Research Department lies at the core of our activities. We are continuously testing and developing new varieties to suit local climatic conditions and combating disease outbreaks.

Being the only private seed company in East Africa with an end-to-end maize research and breeding program.

We also partner with various international organizations such as CIMMYT, BASF and ICIPE to develop newer varieties which are stronger and aid the farmer. Our two latest varieties as a result of our commitment in Research and Development are WH 509 and HARAKA 101(The early variety). We highly regard research as we believe it is through that that we can be able to sustain the farmer whose interests are at our heart.
