Knowing the correct procedure for saving seed is a valuable skill for small-scale vegetable farmers.

Saving seed allows farmers to:

  • save money on inputs
  • maintain local landraces and varieties
  • build a local source of seed in areas lacking access to seed distributors
  • exchange seed with fellow farmers
