  • Access to foundation seed of varieties in the public domain

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 5

    The production and delivery of early generation seed (i.e.breeder and foundation seed) is a key bottleneck in the performance of seed value chains in sub-Saharan Africa (ISSD Africa, 2015). Seed producers are failing to satisfy an estimated demand for seed of public varieties, due to insufficient access to foundation seed (also referred to as basic seed) of these varieties. The focus of this study is on the relationship between private seed producers and public suppliers of varieties in the seed value chains, with regard to foundation seed production.

  • Public variety use agreements

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 6

    Seed enterprises would prefer to use public varieties as exclusively as possible for marketing reasons, while the public sector would like to distribute its public good varieties to many seed enterprises.These diverging interests of the public and private sectors require agreements on how public varieties can be accessed (as early generation seed) and used (with different levels of exclusivity). This study focuses on agreements between public plant breeders/research organizations and private seed producers, and hence concentrates on public-private partnership arrangements involving the transfer of released varieties.

  • Creating space for ‘informal’ seed systems in a plant variety protection system that is based on UPOV 1991

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 7

    The challenge for African countries is to strike a balance between protecting the interests of breeders, to maintain the incentive function of plant breeders’ rights in the commercial market, while providing sufficient leeway to smallholder farmers that depend on informal sources for their seed security and survival. An equally pressing challenge is to establish a PVP (plant variety protection) system that is acceptable to the key stakeholders (notably farmers and breeders), as this is very likely a prerequisite for successful implementation. ISSD Africa aims to actively contribute to this endeavour by answering the action learning question: How can room be created for ‘informal’ seed systems in a UPOV 1991 informed plant variety protection system?
