Generation and transfer of improved technologies are critical prerequisites for agricultural development particularly for an agrarian based economy like Ethiopia. Despite the release of several technologies, particularly of improved crop varieties, there has been limited use of improved seeds by the majority of farmers. Among others, unavailability of quality seeds at the right place and time coupled with poor promotion system, is one of the key factors accounting for limited use of improved seeds, which further contributing for low agricultural productivity. Poor availability and promotion of improved seeds is due to inefficiency of the seed systems of the country. Though, this review paper assesses mainly the status of seed system and its challenges in Ethiopian farmers.
