The setting up of this forest reproductive material website was thought to address and make better use of existing teaching and extension resources in the long-term. This website summarises training and extension resources related to forest reproductive material (i.e. seeds, cuttings etc). The aim is to facilitate access to extension resources concerning tree seed and related topics and make it easier for extension workers to produce new, appropriate resources without reinventing the wheel. The study has focused on technical topics. It also tries to focus on intermediate and field level resources. Tree seed is increasingly being collected by and for farmers, and so extension material should be at a level suitable for farmers, concerned with identification of suitable trees for collections, basic principles of tree selection, harvesting and storage, and collection and distribution of quality seed by and to farmers.
