Based on experience in farmer participatory crop breeding and seed-delivery systems in Africa, this project will support national public crop-breeding teams to conduct crop-variety trials of a range of food crops on-station and on-farm, allowing for the best-suited crop varieties to be officially released for seed production and supply to farmers.
