About this eBook

PREFACE The significance of sustainable agriculture is hidden in the use of quality seed. Seed is the most critical and vital input for enhancing productivity. The importance of seed had been recognized since time when human practiced crop husbandry. In recent years, after the emergence of WTO and post GATT-era, the importance of seed quality has assumed more awareness in the global concern. Seed certification provides a legal-umbrella for keeping the standards. Traditionally, seed testing was confined to seed germination and purity, however, as per the new seed bill the scope and area shall cover a larger domin, including seed health. Inspite of available rules and regulation, there seems a lack of awareness about certification, from both the ends. The growers producer and the consumer traders , needs to understand the significance of quality that can be achieved through legal option and enforcement. I congratulate, Professor D.K. Mishra and his team that they brought-out the information seed and its quality in a systematic manner. Hopefully this publication will be very useful to everyone involved in seed production, quality and business. Jai Hind
