    • Demandassessment& supply responsesin Ethiopia’steff seed system David J Spielman  Dawit K Mekonnen Addis Ababa, Ethiopia October 10, 2013 International Food Policy Research Institute
    • Seed,science,and supply • How do we think about seed? • The farmer’s “means of production” • The embodiment of technological change • The foundation of an agricultural transformation • A viable investment opportunity • The object of contested rights What role do policymakers play in encouraging both production and innovation that benefit society as whole?
    • Measuringprogressin seedsystemdevelopment • Conventional measures of seed system performance • Seed demand estimates • Seed production quantities • Seed replacement rates • Certified seed use • Cultivated area under improved seed use Do these measures adequately capture the growth and transformation of a seed system and its benefits for society?
    • Teff seedsupply deficits,*1995/96–2011/12 * Based on official estimates of demand Source: MoA (2012) -75,000 -65,000 -55,000 -45,000 -35,000 -25,000 -15,000 -5,000 5,000 15,000 Quintals

    • Why should farmersbuy seed? • To obtain better quality seed • Higher rates of purity, germination • To obtain a better cultivar • Yield, stress resistance, taste • To renew temporary genetic gains • Heterosis expression in hybrids • To recover from a disaster • Drought, flood, disease
    • What should we measure? • Research and regulatory system performance • R&D investment trends, cultivar release rate, regulatory costs • Costs of regulation and regulatory bottlenecks • Production and marketing system performance • Seed quality, cultivar age • Production/distribution costs • Market structure and concentration • Farmer preferences and behaviors • Seed saving trends, trait preferences, adoption determinants

    • Policy and investmentpriorities • Strategic oversight and policy implementation • Build decision-making tools for informed policy making • Research system • Increase investment and reform efforts in research system • Improve equitable access to public research materials Regulatory system • Strengthen seed quality monitoring in the marketplace • Production, distribution, and marketing • Level the playing field: Reallocate public/private roles
