Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Seed regulatory frameworks aim to promote varietal and seed quality, and thereby to protect farmers from planting sub-standard seeds. The seed laws commonly regulate variety testing and release, seed certification and seed quality control, and they establish the institutional framework of national seed councils and certification agencies. This chapter analyses the effects of seed regulatory frameworks in relation to the objectives of broadening the genetic base of plant breeding, with particular focus on the role of alternative breeding strategies.
