Factores favorables

The effectiveness comes from the inclusion of local knowledge, its participatory approach and the fact that it is owned by farmers themselves. In comparison to conventional breeding schemes that do not address the core development challenge and are often unsuccessful. Unlike conventional breeding programs involving nucleus schemes and or importation of exotic germplasm for crossbreeding (both requiring infinite support and inputs from the implementing organization).

CBBPs which focus on indigenous stock and consider farmers’ decisions and active participation, from inception through to implementation, are identified as programmes of choice because they fit in different production systems and agroecologies. CBBP has potential for replication because it develops confidence in local communities as it is based on existing management and breeding practices and because of failure of earlier centralized schemes people are desperate for a new approach.
