The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Seed Centre
coordinates the implementation of the SADC Harmonized Seed Regulatory System (HSRS) working with all 16 SADC Member States to harmonize seed policies and regulations governing seed trade.
The goal of the SADC HSRS is to establish regional standards for seed production and facilitate the trade of high-quality seed across the region, integrating small, isolated markets into one larger SADC-wide market.
Gain access to all 16 SADC markets through a more streamlined process and increase productivity.
Gain access to high-quality seed that is more resilient to climate-related weather and resistant to pests and plants diseases.
