NRCFCS is the legal farmers’ institution and member-owned. It was registered on 21st /June/2013 with the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives (MTIC) under the provisions of section 6 (2) of the Cooperative Societies Act, Cap 112 with a permanent certification of registration (RegNo. 10266 /RCS).It has a membership of 3,200 individuals spread through the 30-member Rural Producer Organizations (RPOs) operating in the districts of Lira, Alebtong, Dokolo, and Kole.

NRCFCS is producing six crops, namely oil crops (sesame, sunflower, and soybean,) maize, beans, and cassava. These enterprises are produced in bulk, using conservation farming methods where farmers use improved seeds/QDS and fertilizers coupled with proper post-harvest handling making the quality and quantity of the products superior to those of the competitors. The main services offered by NRCFCS to its members are: i) Marketing of their grain produce, ii) provision of storage services, iii) supply of Agro- inputs, iv) Agro-processing and value addition, v) Digital payment and Agent banking services, vi) Agricultural extension and advisory services, vii) Tractor hire and transport services, and viii) Local seed business (LSB).

Leveraging the MDF funding, NRCFCS will scale up its local seed business (LBS) to increase availability, access, and utilization of QDS for maize, beans, and sesame among smallholder farmers including its members in the Lango sub-region. Specifically, the partnership will:

  • Increase employment opportunities for members of the cooperative especially youth and women as contracted seed producers and employees in the seed processing and packaging unit.
  • Increase the quantity of Quality Declared Seeds (QDS) produced by NRCFCS through the engagement of more seed producers and efficiently providing them with mechanized tillage, and extension services using digitalized platforms.
  • Increase incomes and improve livelihoods of smallholder farmers (SHFs) by enhancing members’ and SHFs’ access to and utilization of QDS, improving their productivity in maize, beans, and sesame grain production.
