NOTES: FAO, through its Seed and Plant Genetics Resources Service, is conducting a series of workshops to generate ideas, develop methodologies and facilitate initiatives aimed at strengthening on-farm seed multiplication (the informal seed system), thereby addressing the seed security needs of smallholder farmers. The informal seed system in Latin America receives inadequate attention from policy-makers. FAO organized the Latin American Workshop on Seed Multiplication by Resource-limited Farmers to identify the major constraints facing on-farm seed production and the groups of resource-limited farmers to be targeted, and to propose solutions for increasing the availability of good quality seed to small-holder farmers.
