How it works
The Access to Seeds Index is founded on the premise that the seed industry can make a significant contribution to the productivity of smallholder farmers. As an independent source of information, the Index seeks to stimulate an informed dialogue on the ways in which companies can step up their efforts. It also serves as a means for companies to benchmark their own progress and that of their peers as well as identify areas for improvement. The indicators used to evaluate company performance are based on the expectations of stakeholders in and around the seed industry.
