Abstract
The production of seeds of temperate vegetables in East Africa is, in many respects, still in the experimental stage, although an increasing amount of seed is being produced. We whJ are engaged on the work are learning new facts every day, frequently finding it necessary to modify or reject theories and practices which have been employed for decades in the established seed-producing areas of the world. It is, in fact, pleasantly startling when, on occasion, we find that some practice of the temperate seed-grower is also successful in the tropics, if modified either intentionally or by the sheer outcome of our ignorant blunderings, or by an act of God.
