Establishing community-based seed systems: a training manual

D.O. Manzanilla, J.D. Janiya, D.E. Johnson

The Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) seeks to develop community-based seed systems (CBSS) in rainfed rice areas as a delivery system for technologies and capacity enhancement strategies on seed health management, crop diversification, crop management options, and other demand--driven interventions. The aim is to increase productivity and enhance livelihoods.

EIRLSBN: Twenty years of achievements in rice breeding

B.C.Y. Collard, A.M. Ismail, B. Hardy

The Eastern India Rainfed Lowland Shuttle Breeding Network (EIRLSBN) has now been in operation (in various forms) for more than 20 years and it has been a “quiet achiever.” Therefore, it is high time that the history and accomplishments of this successful breeding network be formally documented, especially for the sake of the next generation of breeders and rice scientists.
