The National Centre for Vegetable Seed Production (Cnpsh) works to improve tomato and other species in the country, support producers, and guarantee food security. Every year, the institution produces more than 14,000 kilos of the seed of 14 vegetable species. Fifty per cent of the production is of carrot seed, 20 per cent of onion seed, and less than 10 per cent of tomato seed; the rest is of other species. The institution is prioritising the launch of a hybrid tomato variety on the market, which improves yields.
