MetadataShow full item record
This policy brief is based on a study conducted by KIPPRA in 2005, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI}, and Tegemeo Institute of Egerton University. The study uses value-chain analysis to establish the costs of seed maize at various stages of seed maize production, processing and marketing, in order to determine the major factors contributing to the high prices of seed maize in Kenya and thus propose policy recommendations to reverse the trend.
