Final Technical Report.


The project purpose was ‘participatory methods for varietal selection and breeding developed, tested, piloted and promoted in the semi-arid production system’. The project targeted poor and marginal farmers in eastern India (Jharkhand, W. Bengal and Orissa) who grow old and low yielding landraces because of lack of suitable modern varieties. The project sought to breed new varieties of rice and maize using client-oriented breeding.
