D3. Women participation in CSPsWomen participation in commercial seed producer groups in Timor-Leste

Maria Fernandes, Buddhi Kunwar and Amaro Ximenes

Recognising the role of women in commercial seed production, their participation was examined in commercial seed producer groups established by Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Timor-Leste. From the assessment of 58 commercial seed producer groups, results revealed that women participation in membership was 36%, while in leadership positions such as Chief, Vice Chief, Secretary and Treasurer were 16%, 14%, 21% and 81%, respectively. Results suggest that although women participation in Treasurer position was highly satisfactory, more efforts are required in future from MAF extension workers to educate men to cooperate as well as encourage women to come forward to take more participation of women in membership as well as other key leadership positions – such as Chief, Vice Chief and Secretary – in the groups.

D4. Capacity assessment of CSPsCapacity Assessment of Commercial Seed Producers: A Pilot Study

Buddhi Kunwar, Antony de Jesus and Ilidio Medonsa

Sustainability of Commercial Seed Producer Group (CSPs) depends upon how far they have developed basic capacities to sustain their on-going activities. Recognising this issue, CSPs were assessed against five basic capacities identified through focused group discussions with CSP members and Municipal Community and Commercial Coordinator. These include: institutional; technical, management, financial and networking capacities. Two CSPs namely Ruxio and Esperensa Moris Diak from Aileu were taken for this pilot study in December 2015. This capacity assessment exercise clearly informs the MAF extension staff to identify areas of strength that need to be maintained and strengthened for the CSPs. It also indicates the key areas of shortcomings in the selected capacities. The capacity assessment tool found to be useful in rationalising efforts of MAF staff to improve CSPs performance in the future.

D5. Assessing the spread of maize groupsAssessing the spread of maize seed growers groups

Between 2011 and 2016, some 700 maize growing Community Seed Production Groups were formed in sucos all over Timor-Leste, and since 2013 close to a hundred of these groups have associated themselves into 35 Commercial Seed Producers, growing improved maize seed. Timor-Leste has 442 sucos, but the sucos are varied in many ways: 405 are rural sucos and 37 are urban sucos; some sucos are relatively easy to reach and have good infrastructure, other are poorer, more remote and lack amenities; some have more than a thousand maize growers, others less than ten. Given this wide diversity between sucos, how does the spread of the maize seed growers groups compare to the relative poverty of the sucos, and the number of maize growers in the sucos? Are there also enough maize seed groups in the poorer sucos, or in the sucos with many maize growers? To assess the spread of the maize seed growers groups, a combined suco poverty ranking / maize growers ranking is used.

The title song was co written by John 5 of Marilyn Manson notoriety, Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. "It's going to be an amazing album, as in the true tradition of all Bat albums," said Meat Loaf (born Marvin Lee Aday, now age 53) on his web site. "Updates and music clips will be posted on the site right now, the title cut, "Monster's Loose," can be downloaded.. She's pragmatic, but also our emotional core. Mulder is perfectly defined in his introduction He takes the neighborhood kids' baseball and makes it disappear, all the while dispensing his snark, and leaving the kids scratching their heads. The real kicker is when he gets inside his house we realize he literally stole the kids' baseball. More on the Wu Tang and their hand in ruining rap later, but for now, let's talk Nas and Biggie. For all intents and purposes, they were opposite sized versions of the same person right before their debut albums came out. Both had made their names by delivering jaw dropping guest appearances on other people's records (as if there's another place to make a guest appearance), and both were the next likely torchbearers for what's affectionately referred to as "real" rap. Prepare the spring rolls, 1 at a time, by placing some of the vermicelli down the center of the wrapper. Place a few pieces each of the shredded pork, red bell pepper, cucumber, green onion, carrot, romaine, mint leaves, basil leaves, and cilantro leaves all in a line down the center of the wrapper over the top of the vermicelli. Carefully roll the spring roll, folding in both ends first and then rolling up burrito fashion, to accommodate all of the filling ingredients. Conclusion:Having come off their 52 week high, shares of TJX now appear to offer a moderate margin of safety. Yesterday's closing price of $56.60 is in line with historical P/E ratios for the company based upon the low end of management's 2015 guidance. I believe, though, that this price does not fully account for TJX's long term growth opportunity and inherent competitive advantages..
