A Handbook of Seed Certification by Mishra DK, Khare D, Bhale MS, Koutu GK
Book Summary:

Availability of foods grains per person has increased from 452 g per capita per day to over 476 g per capita per day, even as the country's human population almost doubled from 548 million to about 1025 million. This could have been possible due to the positive efforts of agricultural research and extension policies and availability of matching technologies for nutrient-water-soil-stress management with high yielding varieties of crop plants. The continued availability of food grain also depends upon the supply of quality seeds to the end-users. The quality seed remains the architect of evergreen revolution under Indian perspective. The sowing-seed-quality is governed by several factors and demands a vigilant-eye on maintenance of utmost quality at every step of its production and distribution.
