A total of 25 participants, 12 participants from seed farms (DOA), 8 participants from seed research farms (DAR), 2 participants from seed quality testing lab (Upper Myanmar), 1 participant from seed quality testing lab (Nay Pyi Taw), 1 participant from WHH and 1 participant from seed division (Head office) have improved skill in seed production and seed quality control with emphasis on EGS of Sunflower and Pigeon pea crops.

 

 

First day session on hybrid seed production and EGS production of Sunflower Crop

Conclusion

            The lack of access to quality seed is considered a major constraint for improvement of agricultural productivity. The training exposed the participants to put greater effort in quality seed production and seed delivery system. The training also helped relationships among themselves and with the researchers (DAR) through the training and hopefully beyond the training.
