Abstract: This seed increase and TLII interaction plan is critical to the success of N2Africa because one of the first steps to achieving the milestones related to Objective 4: “Deliver legume and inoculants technologies to farmers throughout sub-Saharan Africa” is to have seed of improved varieties of soybean, common bean, groundnut and cowpea available for farmers to plant. N2Africa is determined to deliver a combination of technologies such as improved varieties of grain legumes, rhizobium inoculum, improved agronomic practices and P fertilizer to African farmers that will dramatically increase crop production. We are committed to do this with partners such as the private industry, and the various governmental and nongovernmental organizations so that these technologies that increase crop production will continue to be available to the producers after N2Africa has ended. We have decided to combine reports on several milestones that involve interactions with TLII and the seed increase plan as all of these involve interaction with TLII scientists. TLII is leading the development of improved varieties of grain legumes in Africa has used a large number of different models for seed multiplication and we can learn from their experience. Although the N2Africa project was only launched officially in January 2010, the TLII and N2Africa projects have already integrated their activities, planning, and communications.
