Crops Research Institute meet pepper value chain stakeholders

The Crops Research Institute (CRI) of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is engaging stakeholders in the pepper value chain. The aim is to enable it to develop varieties that meet local and international demands.

According to Dr Michael Kwabena Osei, Senior Research Scientist and Vegetable Breeder at CRI, the objective was to ensure that players in the sector accepted and used varieties that were released by the Institute: “We are now doing demand-led-breeding which involves that the CRI mobilizes the stakeholders so that they will be part of the selection process of new varieties.”  

Dr Osei said the CSIR-CRI was currently doing participatory selection of about 28 different lines of pepper varieties, which were obtained from the World Vegetable Center.
