Farmers' Seed and Varieties: Supporting Informal Seed Supply in Ethiopia

This book addresses strategies and approaches through which professionals can support informal seed supply. These professionals work in seed sector development, crop improvement and genetic resources management, or more generally in research and extension. The book also presents strategies for linking the support of informal seed supply with the conservation and use of the huge genetic resource base of crops and local varieties. The book is an output of the tailor-made training on the improvement of farmer-based seed production and revitalization of the informal seed supply of local crops and varieties in Ethiopia. The papers were written by the trainers, resource persons and participants of the one-year training programme.
