About this eBook

PREFACE Seed technology is a practicing science that involves the role of scientists, producers and the certification agency. Since, the dawn of high yielding variety programme, the role of seeds has increased tremendously in providing succor to our farmer brethren. Today, we are literally harvesting the fruits of HYP. All this could be possible only with the systematic procedures laid down by the Central Seed Committee. Over the years, seed science has grown into a separate discipline all by itself adding new vistas and techniques. This book envisages to bring together such procedures in a simplified form. The data from the publications brought out by Central Seed Committee and National Seed Corporation, New Delhi have been utilized for this book and presented in a summarized manner for easy accessibility. The problems provided in this book would be very useful to the students and others engaged directly or indirectly in seed trade. Seed legislations have been provided only as glimpse, as providing the full text is beyond the scope of this book. The current and relevant data alone have been included and we do know that it is not exhaustive. Our readers are advised to revise the data as and when it gets modified and incorporate wherever necessary. Madurai 625 104
