Participatory plant breeding (PPB) is the systematic and regular involvement of farmers as decision-makers in all stages of a plant breeding program. PPB falls within a spectrum of approaches that ranges from traditional plant breeding by farmers, with no involvement of scientists, to conventional plant breeding by scientists with no involvement of farmers.
