Tree Seed for Farmers Toolkit

Tree Seed for Farmers Toolkit

The toolkit is based on a review of existing documentation and extension materials on seed production. Useful references to augment the toolkit information are also provided.

This toolkit complements existing materials on seed production in two fundamental ways.

Firstly, it provides information on how joint strategies can be made by the various actors and stakeholders in scaling-up tree planting in defined regions.

Secondly, it explores in further detail the option of developing sustainable systems that provide quality material by involving the private sector in seed production. The final section of the toolkit primarily focuses on tree nursery management.
