History & Profile

Our head office is in Nairobi, Kenya. Since 1995 EASEED has spread its wings in the region with branches in Arusha, Tanzania and Kampala, Uganda. Our Agrochemical division was converted into a separate entity- Agriscope (Africa) Ltd. in the year 2003 under the EASEED group for serving the Agrochemical needs of the farmer more efficiently.

We have a wide distribution network with appointed dealers and stockists in major cities and towns of the East and Central African region.

I am happy to share with you the progress of. EASEED with the blessings and inspiration of our founder Late Mr. L.V. Shah. Over 43 years of our marketing efforts have brought us overwhelming success of our varieties in East Africa and beyond.

We launched our maize Hybrids in East Africa (KH600-15A & KH500-43A in association with K.A.L.R.O.) and Uganda (Longe 8H in association with NARO). We have now introduced our own in house bred Maize Hybrids: early maturing (TOSHEKA (MH401) & drought resistant AHADI (WE1101).
