(EUA): 1985Description: 35 p.Summary: One in a series of private enterprise development Special Studies commissioned bN the Bureau for Program and Policy Coordination of the Agency for International Development (AID), this study focuses on the two AID Seed Development Loan projects in Thailand. It reviews the development of Thailand's seed industry and identifies those factors that have been critical to its development and growth. It is not an evaluation; rather, by providing an overview, it attempts to describe what has been a relatively successful blending of public and private interests and efforts leading to the new, modern seed industry of Thailand. This modernization was accomplished within 9 years. Thailand's rudimentary seed industry, with a few indigenous producers (mainly in vegetable seed), evolved into a modern industry with five operating private seed companies, each in a joint venture with a major international seed firm. Standard project documentation, status reports, and evaluations were reviewed to provide background for extensive interviews with public, private, and education sector representatives (see Appendix A for a complete listing of inverviewees). Information obtained through interviews, when applied to standard industry development models, yielded conclusions on the significance of certain elements observed in this specific case. These elements were critical to Thailand's attaining its modern seed industry status. A weakness with this methodology and its presentational format is that it presupposes the reader's familiarity with the seed industry in general.
