Organization Description
The Rohama Seed Production Center (Rohama SPC) aims to address the unavailability of improved seed issue in the Atsimo Andrefana Region. Undertaken assessment of agricultural sector has demonstrated that this issue is one of the biggest constraints the agricultural sector is facing. As the Rohama SPC is still at its setting-up phase, it doesn’t pretend yet willing to provide at 100% the regional need on seed but its existence will initiate and enhance the awareness of the importance of improved seed for successful agriculture.

The SPC Rohama, which is a limited liability corporate, plans to produce different kind of seeds in response to the regional need. With its about 7Ha of land, it is located in Ankoronga, Rural Commune of Betsinjaka in the district of Toliara II. The SPC is about 9 km far from the city of Toliara on the 7th National Road (RN7). It has started to prepare for its first agricultural campaign even though this will mainly be focused on biological restoration of the soil fertility. The seeding will probably start on late November or December according to the rain calendar.
