4 Marketing Strategy Zaka Super Super Seeds has several strategies that include: Agro-Dealers have signed MOUs to market seed at a commission in all the wards in the district Seed Fairs are organized in cluster wards and other competing companies are invited The APEX Committees sell the seed on behalf of the association

The Warehouse at Fuve Irrigation Scheme has been rehabilitated by HaSSP The Enterprise has been supported with Processing equipment As seed is delivered, samples are taken for purity and germination tests A satellite laboratory has been set up at the warehouse with help from the Seed Services

17 farmers trained to conduct purity and germination tests Germination, minimum prescribed, for example, maize is 90%, farmer payments are processed All seed received was fumigated with gastoxin tablets for 7 days to control weevil infestation

7 Inspections and Reports
Conducted by Seed Services Two inspections are conducted for each crop Flowering Maturity Field Inspection Reports issued

8 Revolving Fund The project has set up a revolving fund for Zaka Super Seeds to pay the seed farmers Funds generated sfter selling seed are retained in this account Funds are not spent as long as they are not profits Good management of funds will ensure sustainability in the absence of funding from HaSSP and the Seeds and Market projects The Zaka Super Seeds Finance Committe is in the process of coming up with a Financial Procedures manual
