Seed Borne Diseases of Field Crops their Management by Bhale MS, Gaur A
Book Summary:

The awareness for seed health has increased many folds among planners, researchers, growers, traders, and consumers, in the trade-era of WTO and subsequent post GATT- implications of various treaties. With the implementation of Seed Bill (amendment in Seed Act 1966), the seed health testing shall be an obligatory issue beside the consideration of seed germination and purity tests for certification. However, in Indian Seed Certification System several diseases associated with seeds have been designated as objectionable in seed production programme of Foundation and Certified seeds. The tolerance limits for Seed Crop and Seed Lot have been formulated with Indian Minimum Seed Certification Standards.
