Farmers who grow vegetatively propagated crops (VPC) face certain limitations in access to seed. Some of these constraints are related to policy, institutions and markets. This user guide describes a tool for conducting seed regulatory framework analysis for VPCs. It addresses quality assurance models (e.g. seed certification) and other regulations that can increase availability and access to quality VPC seed for smallholders. The methods used to collect and analyze the data include literature reviews, analysis of regulatory documents, focus group discussions and validation workshops. Stakeholder consultations through standardized key informant interviews are especially important. The resulting analysis is used to advise policy makers and regulatory bodies.
