College Management Board toured the Seed Enterprise and Management Institute (SEMIs) construction site. Led by Prof. Mwangombe, their visit to the sight was for the purpose of inspecting the progress of SEMIs’ newly constructed building that is on its final stages.
SEMIs is an initiative under the Programme for Africa’s Seed Systems (PASS) in Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). The role of SEMIs is to provide capacity in the form of training to seed the Seed Industry so as to enhance seed production and delivery systems within Sub-Saharan Africa.
The courses in SEMIs are intended for persons dealing in the production of certified seed in seed companies. The short courses are intended to instill skills on good understanding of seed production management and quality assurance regulations to achieve seed production goals.
It is the only project of its kind in East Africa.
