    The present manual endeavours to specify the essential functions of a seed industry and their logical sequence in terms of national seed programmes. This volume attempts to provide a world-wide review of the principles and objectives, organization, and methods of cereal seed production, quality control, and distribution. Itdiscusses the latest findings on cereal seed and pays particular attention to the situation in developing countries. It is designed primarily for those involved in cereal seed production and utilization, including plant breeders, seed growers, processors, quality control officers, · dealers, and exten sion agents; it will also be of value to agricultural studenls.

    The Guidelines for Production Of Seed Rhizome in Shadehouse Facility under a Certification Programme in Jamaica describes the processes involved in the production of disease-free healthy seed rhizomes utilizing tissue culture sources of planting material and the single bud technology for ginger production in Jamaica. The manual provides information on the certification process for persons desirous of becoming certified “seed rhizome producers” and the production practices which should result in the multiplication of limitedly available planting material and a better-quality product for field production. The details of the steps to be taken towards becoming a certified producer of ginger planting material are clearly outlined and provide an opportunity for persons engaged in commercial production of ginger planting material to increase their levels of production and productivity. It must be noted that the information contained herein is a guide that will evolve over time as more information becomes readily available.

    Accounting of Water for Improved Management of Water Resources - TCP/PAK/3606 2020
    Also available in:

    Pakistan’s population is expected to reach 221 million by 2025 and, coupled with growing impacts of climate change, the country is expected to respond to pressures on limited water resources due to population growth and a growing need for climate resilient livelihoods. As such, federal and provincial Pakistani authorities have recognized the importance of ensuring water availability and access in order to adequately respond to national agricultural, sanitation and industrial needs. Agricultural production is especially important given that the agricultural sector consumes close to 90 percent of all currently available fresh water supplies in the country. While agriculture accounts for the overwhelming majority of water resources used, it is also the sector responsible for producing more than 90 percent of the country’s food supply and generating 75 percent of the country’s export revenues. Unsurprisingly, agriculture and food production account for 20 percent of Pakistan’s gross domestic product (GDP). Therefore, rural livelihoods are particularly vulnerable to climate-driven water scarcity, given the country’s largely arid to semi-arid climate and its high dependency on a single river system: the Indus River Basin System. Despite being the world's largest contiguous irrigation system and the main water lifeline for Pakistan’s household consumption, sanitation and economic activities, there is insufficient data on water availability, use and governance specific to the Indus River Basin. Moreover, a marked increase in the number of private tube wells over the last 30 years has changed underground water pumping modalities. In light of the limited awareness on the importance of joint efforts for water management, the project helped establish these links between different uses of water along multiple sectors and locations around the country. It convened actors to assess water governance through a systems approach, where the concerns and priorities of all stakeholders concerned were reflected and understood by others.
