About this book

Improved food security, led by increased productivity among Africa's many small-scale farmers, has been the aim of significant national and international effort in recent decades. This book grew out of a two-year exploration conducted by the food security among rural populations in Africa. It provides a critical assessment of the ways in which breakthroughs in biotechnology, participatory plant breeding, and seed systems can be broadly employed in developing and delivering more productive crop varieties in Africa's diverse agricultural environments.

Media reviews

"Biotechnology approaches to food crop improvement in sub- Saharan Africa need to take into account local requirements. The authors review the agro-ecological, seed supply, and policy challenges as well as new crop alteration strategies and priority areas of research and development. DeVries and Toenniessen are affiliated with the Rockefeller Foundation, the former in Nairobi and the latter in New York. The book includes color plates, maps, figures, and data tables."--SciTech Book News
