Formal system and farmers' system: the impact of CIMMYT maize germplasm in South-western China


Formal system and farmers' system: the impact of CIMMYT maize germplasm in South-western China



Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension 8(1): 23-30



ISSN/ISBN: 1389-224X

DOI: 10.1080/13892240185300051

Based on field work among the maize cultivators and breeders in southwestern China, this paper describes and analyses how the formal and farmer's seed systems adapted to CIMMYT's breeding material to meet their different goals and interests, and how they work with different varieties and operate at different levels.
