Ghana's commercial seed sector: New incentives or continued complacency?

Robert Tripp and Akwesi Mensah-Bonsu

No 32, GSSP working papers from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

Abstract: This paper examines the current status and recent changes in Ghana’s commercial seed system for field crops. It includes a review of present performance and an examination of the factors that might influence the course of seed system develop-ment in the near future. The paper is timely because a number of changes in policies, regulations, responsibilities, and commercial interests mean that this could be a period of significant transition for Ghana’s seed sector, perhaps marking an end to the stagnation and complacency that have characterized the sector for the past several decades.
