Summary, etc. The trends in population, poverty and the environment and the relationships among them are used to introduce the importance of food supply in the developing countries. Maize is an important cereal in this food supply and it is the most widely adapted cereal crop. Seed is required for the 80m ha of maize in the developing countries, most of this being in the tropics. CIMMYT conducted surveys in 1986 an 1993 to investigate the type of seed used, the various sources of these seeds and trends over time. The results are reviewed for developing countries and comparisons made with the situation in industrialized countries. The situation for open pollinated varieties and hybrids are compared. For simplicity farmers are classified into four classes and their seed needs discussed. The roles of five key players in meeting these seed needs are discussed.
