1. Good quality bean seed.

Study Guide, CIAT, Apartado A_reo 6713, Cali, Colombia; Series 04eB-12.03, 1981, 36 pp.

An effective seed program comprises many and diverse elements and activities which must be coordinated to attain the principal objective: produce and distribute good quality seed of improved varieties.

Therefore, the success of a seed program is founded on producing and providing a sufficient quantity of good quality seed, at the required time, at a reasonable cost, and at a location where it is needed, so that the majority of the farmers can enjoy the benefits provided by using this seed.

This study guide is complementary material to the audiotutorial unit "Good-Quality Bean Seed". Its principal objective is to provide useful information relating to the practices of production, quality control and processing of bean seed.

The audiotutorial unit is a translation of the Spanish unit entitled "Semilla de Frijol de Buena Calidad" which was produced by CIAT through a special project on the development and utilization of training materials on improved agricultural production technology.

The handbook contains the following chapters:

 

- Objectives
