Quality declared seed: technical guidelines for standards and procedures FAO plant production and protection paper 117 1993 186pp ISBN 92 5 103278 5 Publications Department, FAO Via delle Terme di Caracalla 00100 Rome, ITALY
To improve the quality of seed being offered for sale in countries where human and physical resources for quality control are limited, FAO has introduced the 'Quality Declared Seed' system which makes use of resources already available in seed production organizations. The system is designed to provide quality control during seed production which is less demanding on government resources than seed certification but is adequate to provide good quality seed both within countries and in international trade. Part I of Quality declared seed outlines the general guidelines applicable to all crop species. Part II deals with guidelines on individual crop species by category: cereals, food legumes oil crops, forage crops (both grasses and legumes), industrial crops and vegetable crops.
