High level multi-stakeholder workshop
Getting improved seed and animal seed stock of good quality from breeders to smallholder and family farms in low- and middle-income countries is challenging. Much good genetic material is available in particular public research institutes
due to limitations in the seed and animal seed stock value chains and the enabling environment, improved varieties and breeds are often not or not easily available or accessible for smallholder and family farms in low and middle income countriess.
Several studies underline the potential and the importance of the local private seed sector to solve this problem. Some of the major challenges in the ‘seed’ value chain are: .
- Seed value chains
- Parent stock chains
