The main objective of providing infrastructure support to CBSP groups, cooperatives, seed companies, and partners is to strengthen their capacity in seed production in particular and research and development in general. The project has provided various types of infrastructure (construction of seed store, threshing floor, tents, seed drillers etc.) and lab and farm equipment support (lab equipment, harrows, mini tillers etc.)
Community managed small infrastructure and equipment are key to the sustainability of the CBSP groups. HMRP provides partial financial support to CBSP groups to construct seed store houses and threshing floors and to purchase small equipment such as seed bins, seed dressing drums, seed graders, stitching machines, moisture meters etc.
