ECHO-BioNica Seed System

BioNica and ECHO are in the implementation phase of a “seed availability and diversity system” for small-scale growers in Nicaragua.


Peanuts (mani) – February 2014

Our objective is to:

1) diversify the supply of seeds available to small-scale growers by introducing an assortment of vegetables, legumes and grains; and,

2) diversify the inventory of staple crops by introducing varieties from countries with warmer and drier climates, including Africa and Asia.
