Throughout the world, community-based leaders known as “custodian farmers” have been recognized for the vital role they play in conserving crop diversity on-farm and in situ.. Custodian farmers are individuals who are passionate about the work of conserving and managing crop genetic diversity (and sometimes their wild relatives) on behalf of their Native Seed / SEARCH (NS/S) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to seed conservation in the Southwest United States and Northwest Mexico. Based in Tucson, Arizona, NS/S has grown to acquire a state-of-the art conservation facility, over 2, varieties of aridland-adapted seeds, and a reputation as a leader in heirloom ://

FUENTES, D. BAZILE, A. BHARGAVA, E. MARTÍNEZ   The book offers a truly global vision of the on-farm conservation movement and, like no other before it, provides a comprehensive review of the issues and challenges of on-farm conservation of genetic resources.

The book's chapters are written by a collection of outstanding scholars and academics from a variety of disciplines; they include The motivation for diversity conservation involving the custodian farmers gives a new dimension for in situ on-farm conservation of many fruit crops and some new hope.

One recommendation is that for every identified farmer variety or farmer unity of diversity to work with a group of farmers neighbouring the main seed producer and support the development of small seed production Social seed systems are important for the maintenance of crop genetic diversity on farm.

This is governed by local and informal system in the community through a farmers’ network. This paper analyses these local seed systems through application of social network analysis tools and mappings and examines the network member and its stability over space and time in a small rice farming community Role of informal seed system in landrace diversification, in situ conservation on-farm and sustainability in production were investigated as a case study for rice diversity in Indian Himalayas.

The diachronic pattern of landrace occurrence revealed substantial increase, both in landrace number and frequency, in time. The local level seed supply in Uttarakhand Himalaya revealed that about 96% On-farm conservation is about maintaining processes, whereas ex situ conservation is about maintaining specifi c results of these processes (specifi c genes and genotypes sampled at a particular point in time).

On-farm conservation is now widely acknowledged as a relevant strategy to reach this goal because it maintains evolutionary forces within and between the different components of the agricultural system.
