Seed Harvest Report Form: Let Us Know of Your Results
Crop evaluation is at the heart of why ECHO supplies small

Success will ultimately be determined by the level of farmer
acceptance. Whether a crop succeeds or
fails, valuable knowledge is gained from the effort that goes into growing out

information gleaned will equip ECHO’s international network with information on
what crops are best suited to specific areas.

those will necessarily be planted and harvested at the same time of year. The advantage of this form is that you can
enter information at your convenience for one crop at a time, as the crops
