Masafumi Tamura. (14/11/2016). Technical Report: Training course on Seed Health Testing - May 9-13, 2016.
The aim of seed health testing is to provide crop producers with quality seed to increase crop productivity and quality and achieve food security and poverty reduction. Seed health testing is an integral part of seed production in all functional national seed supply systems. To improve crop productivity for greater food security, the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) funded a training project for Afghanistan and selected countries in the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region covering a wide range of agriculture research for development disciplines including seed. This course was one of three courses on seed-related issues to be organized in 2016.
