A FRENCH SEED PRODUCTION OF HIGH TECHNICAL LEVEL :
The notion of seed quality starts taking root in the producers’ plots. A good mastery of growing techniques will ensure that the raw seed production is of maximum quality. Thus, the producers benefit from a type of technical assistance that focuses on helping them plan and organise the main production stages, which are key to a successful crop.
Seed production differs from food maize production in its specific practices and equipment and the considerable amount of work hours per hectare it requires. As a central element in the whole process, the producer is the key production driver. Producers are responsible for the quality of the seed they produce. From isolation distances to harvest, they must be present at every step of the way, assisted by industry experts.
