About Us

Agriculture of maize, beans, rice and Irish potatoes

The Burundian population is generally poor and their purchasing power is very low. However, due to poor farming methods, food is always scarce and
therefore people must buy food at all cost

Center for Seed Production of Burundi is based on the sound principles of conserving natural resources, limiting soil erosion, growing, hiring, and eating locally grown and prepared foods, and making the world a better place to live in. This unique perspective clearly shows in the quality of the produce, the well-cared-for gardens.
