In most developing countries, good quality seed is hard to obtain and farmers struggle to save seed from one year to the next. In many areas, farmers have come to rely on seed enterprises that multiply, store and distribute seed. African Seed Enterprises takes a people-centered look at the companies, public agencies and family farms that are taking on this role and making a difference to food security across Africa. Case studies are arranged by country, and each chapter includes a profile of the agricultural and policy environment that surrounds these enterprises and affects their development. Each case is unique and presents its own set of lessons, and, as a whole, this wide range of experiences is a rich source of data and ideas for future enterprise, offering valuable insights for policy makers, academics and non-governmental organizations throughout the world.

Paul Van Mele is with Agro-Insight, Belgium.Review:
"This is a thorough, well-designed book. I found it fascinating and difficult to put down. It is highly relevant to overcoming barriers to new variety introduction in Africa - and hence food security - and is relevant to development more broadly." (Richard Ellis 2012-01-01)
