In Africa in general and Ethiopia in particular the informal seed marketing system dominates (80-90%) the seed marketing; in which Farmers have played important role in producing, saving and exchanging seeds at local level for centuries. Therefore, integrated approach and grass-root seed production-marketing institutional capacity building programs are fundamental to improve the efficiency of informal (farmers) seed marketing system at local level that could promote and strengthen farmer based institutions like farmers group, cooperatives, and community based seed banks through farmers' participation to promote sustainable local seed business development in rural area of Ethiopia.
