Integrated delivery systems of improved livestock and fish genetics
MetadataShow full item record
Integrated delivery systems are required for farmer uptake and adoption of improved livestock and fish genetics; for sustainability, delivery systems should be designed in parallel with product development. For optimal delivery, the process of product selection, multiplication, and dissemination must be supported by an enabling policy environment, investment partnerships, end-user engagement, stakeholder integration, and knowledge feedback. Improved livestock genetics delivery systems can deliver more than just genetics to smallholder farmers; genetic interventions can be packaged or bundled with other relevant interventions to facilitate optimal far system productivity.
