Integrated Seed Sector Development Plus (ISSD Plus)

The primary focus of the Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD) Plus project was making quality seed available and accessible for use by farmers. For all the interventions conducted, there was also the focus on institutionalization of all the four project components, which is crucial for sustainability.

The ISSD Plus project aimed to support the development of a vibrant pluralistic and market-oriented seed sector in Uganda, providing more than 300,000 smallholder farmers access to affordable quality seed of preferred varieties. The project was implemented from 1 October 2016 – 30 June 2021.

It was funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kampala (EKN) and implemented by Wageningen University & Research, Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WUR, WCDI), in partnership with the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) and Wageningen Plant Research (WPR). The other critical implementing partner was the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) through the National Seed Certification Services (NSCS).

The project worked across the entire seed value chain and promoted all classes of quality seed in Uganda with the aim of increasing access to and uptake of quality seed for smallholder farmers in Uganda.
