Swaziland has a high rate of certified seed use, but most of this seed is imported into the country. While there are many varieties released in Swaziland, few are actually produced in the country. Consequently, the alignment of the Swaziland Seed Regulations with the SADC Seed System would facilitate both import of varieties and stimulate local production of seed to meet local seed demand and to exploit export opportunities. Hitherto, the Swaziland variety release system has been based on value for cultivation and use (VCU) and has not required determination of distinctness, uniformity and stability (DUS) of new varieties. Since DUS is a requirement of the SADC Seed System, HaSSP organised a Workshop for stakeholders in the Swaziland seed sector to gain a better understanding of DUS tests for the release of a variety and to establish ways of implementing DUS testing in Swaziland. This report summarises the content and outcome of the workshop.
