Abstract

The informal seed systems in Senegal and Niger are described. These systems still remain the main seed sources for almost all small-scale holder farmers in both countries. The systems perform fairly well at supplying seeds to end-users, distributing seeds at relatively low cost, and maintaining acceptable levels of seed viability and health. A tabulated list of groundnut varieties released in Niger and Senegal is provided. The trends in commercialized production of groundnut seeds in Niger and Senegal are presented.
