Title Getting new public varieties to the farmer
Author(s) Thijssen, M.H.
Source ISSD Africa - 4 p.
Department(s) Advisory
Publication type Working paper aimed at scientific audience
Publication year 2016
Abstract The problem is not that breeders at public research institutes don’t develop new varieties suitable for African farmers. The problem is that many of these varieties never reach the farmer. Action-learning projects by Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD) Africa showed that a better two-way communication between breeders and farmers, and smart agreements between breeders and seed companies can change that.
