The RTB Toolbox: Building a better seed future, together
July 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Off the successful launch of the RTB Toolbox earlier this year, we are very pleased to bring you a three-day workshop focused on the individual tools designed to help farmers, researchers and extension workers build and develop stronger seed systems for RTB crops.
This workshop is the first series of two. The second set of workshops will take place October 26, 28 and 29 and include participation of several national teams who will share their experience (and results) of using these tools in field work under real life conditions.
Language: English simultaneous translation to Spanish and French available.
Building sustained capacity for using the tools and applying new knowledge in designing seed systems Root, tuber and banana crops are the foundation of tropical food security. But their seed systems are complex and widely informal. The seed is bulky, expensive to transport, spoils easily, and can harbor health problems from viruses to weevils.
