Description/Abstract: 

Seed quality can have a major impact on potential crop yield. Previous research found that about 60% of the crop yield in small cereals such as rice relies on the varietal genetic potential. In Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique and other developing countries, rice is grown as a food and cash crop by smallholder farmers whose productivity, production and marketing potential are yet to be reached.
