Seed Saving

Square Version of Seed Saving Logo The seed saving initiatives within the University of Hawaii at Manoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) work to provide a framework for coordinated outreach and training to increase stakeholder knowledge and capacity around seeds.

Building the knowledge base for seed production in Hawai‘i will lay the foundation for increasing the selection, development, and popularization of better adapted local crop varieties in the future.
