Overall the project has been a success--the challenge is to supply sufficient seed.
A sustainable seed distribution system is needed for farmers living in remote areas.
The Sorghum Programme requires continued support from all stake holders--collaboration.
There is need to link farmers to potential markets.
Most farmers have expressed the need for assistance in terms extension service and inputs.
Sorghum is an important crop as it is a direct substitute for maize.
