Maize Seed Systems Analysis

KIT is proud to launch a new 4 part analysis of maize seed systems – in Malawi, Zambia, Bihar in India and Chiapas in Mexico. These studies show that the maize seed sectors in these areas are quite advanced, although need better quality controls. At all 4 places hybrid varieties are now widely grown by small farmers, although in Chiapas, Malawi and Zambia local varieties remain popular for local food preparation. The studies were carried out with support from the CGIAR Research Program (CRP) MAIZE. Please find all the reports below:
