Summary
"This book provides a detailed look at the strengths and weaknesses of seed management in traditional farming systems, reviews the history of formal plant breeding and the origins of seed trade, and examines the roles of the public and private sectors in the contemporary seed systems of industrialised and developing countries." "The book also describes the major types of aid interventions in developing country seed systems and explains why many of these have not been successful." "The examples in this book are drawn from original research in Asia, African and Latin America as well as from an extensive review of the literature."--BOOK JACKET
