Jambi province is included in the soybean belt areas and one of the soybean seed production centres in Sumatra. Fulfilling the soybean production demand of the Jambi region also in surrounding provinces, the seed program is one of the main requirement. This paper aims to provide an overview of the soybean seed production program through innovation technologies and dissemination for Jambi. An action research was carried out from 2016 to 2018 in the Tebo and East Tanjung Jabung regions, involving seven breeding farmers, local governments, research centres and other stakeholders. Activities carried out in the form of demonstrations plot, demonstrations farm, and technical assistance activities. The results showed that more than 100 tons of newly soybean certified seeds (Anjasmoro) were distributed from soybean production areas to other areas in Jambi and to other provinces such as: Riau, West Sumatera, South Sumatera and Aceh). Agronomic data and yield parameters in soybean seed activities from research site were showed minor significant differences compare to farmer practices technologies. Some innovation technologies were introduced i.e. good agricultural practices, and good handling practices for soybean seed farmers. Through this activity, soybean seeds are available throughout the year (2016 up to recent).
