NEPAL TEAM PUBLISHES NEW CATALOGUE OF VARIETIES
March 14th, 2017
Crop varietal development is a major investment of public sector plant breeding. The success of these varieties and their adoption by farmers depends on having a varietal catalogue with information on the new varieties, including the varieties’ unique trait combinations, adaptive capacity to environmental
constraints, and taste and other cultural uses. Adoption also depends on variety catalogues providing sources of seed supply that are readily available to farmers, extension workers, seed dealers and retailers (agrovets) and seed companies.
