Economic incentives for conserving crop genetic diversity on farms: issues and evidence


Economic incentives for conserving crop genetic diversity on farms: issues and evidence



Tomorrow' s agriculture: incentives, institutions, infrastructure and innovations Proceedings of the Twenty fourth International Conference of Agricultural Economists, Berlin, Germany, 13-18 August 2000: 287-305



The first section of this paper summarizes the evidence on the location and size of on-farm crop genetic reserves for the world's three major cereals, rice, wheat and maize. This section concludes that diversity in both systems of modern varieties and systems of mixed and/or landrace populations is relevant for the conservation of crop genetic diversity on farms and its utilization by society.
