ACI Seed, promoting climate smart agriculture in Bangladesh
To overcome this problem, ACI has developed a variety of improved, specially adapted stress tolerant seeds for field crops (rice, wheat, maize, rapeseed etc) and homestead gardening that can be cropped all year around.
The seeds will be sold to farmers at affordable prices and, by providing training in proper and new efficient cropping patterns, crop yields will increase. ACI will not only be a supplier of seeds to the farm families but also a customer buying the full grown crops as commodities. These commodities will be sold by to various external vendors such as feed mills and food industries generating further income for ACI.
ACI seed partnered with a lot of development organizations like USAID,IRRI,Katalyst, IFC and many others to improve the life of the people through implying effective business policy in the market.
As a result farmers are becoming more productive throughout the year, they will get a stable income and have secure access to more nutrient rich crops and products for their own consumption.
