This book argues that the development and diversification of national seed systems, which is currently taking place, requires a thorough re-examination of public regulatory responsibilities. Featuring case studies from a wide range of countries, it presents both a summary of current experience and a set of practical suggestions about how regulatory reform can contribute to the growth of national seed systems. It is addressed to all those concerned with agricultural development, including policymakers, researchers, donors, voluntary agencies, and commercial seed producers.
