    Details

    Seed supply is the vital first step in ensuring that world food resources and industrial crops are maintained and developed. Scientific research on seed production and plant breeding receives wide coverage and large expenditure but relatively little consideration is given to the way that seeds are distributed traded and how growers can be educated in the use of new varieties to improve their production. The author with more than forty years experience as a leading seed researcher addresses these basic questions and considers the way in which effective and economic seed supply systems can be set up and operated. Issues discussed include the importance of seed for food and industrial crop production in both temperate and tropical agriculture: methods to ensure continuity of supply and quality control; the roles of public administration and private enterprise; seed legislation and plant breeders rights and the economic factors that influence seed production. The role of the seed grower and how seeds are (and should be) distributed is developed and the book includes an analysis of seed trade organization in Europe and North America and in the Third World. To assess how efficient seed supply systems can be established and maintained. About the Author A. Fenwick Kelly was active In international organizations concerned with seed supply until his retirement as Deputy Director of the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (Cambridge) in 1983. One of his early achievements was the drafting of the first Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development Seed Scheme in the 1950s. Subsequently he was Chairman of committees in International Seed Testing Association and International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plant and a member of the International Commission for the Nomenclature of Cultivated Plants. Since retirement he has acted as a part time consultant to the FAO on seed matters.
