  • The local agriculture technology research agency (Balai Pengkajian Teknologi Pertanian/BPTP) has role in local varieties development in Central Sulawesi,
  • The local government plays role in area development and its utilization after the seed released
  • The plantation and livestock service of Central Sulawesi supports the preparation for the release of local varieties,
  • GIZ will support the development of sustainable local coffee production in the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve.
