Abstract
The main sources of our vegetable seed supplies in the past, Europe and America, having become uncertain and seed expensive, the question now arises whether we can produce our own seed, thus ensuring future supplies and at the same time reducing imports. This is a difficult question to answer, for information on the ralsmg of European vegetable seeds in the tropics is extremely meagre and no fresh information of any account has come to hand since that published in this Journal in May, 1940. There is no doubt of our ability to produce seed of beans, peas, lettuce and tomatoes, but can we produce seed of beet, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, parsnip, onion and turnip
