Gujarat on top in producing best quality seeds

The use of sub-standard seeds spoils the entire year of farming. Considering this the state government has focused on the production and supply of the certified quality seeds. The four agricultural universities carry out research on best quality seeds for the different crops as per eight agro-climatic zones. The farmers from all corners of India come to Gujarat for buying of best quality seeds. Gujarat is on top for producing the best quality seeds of cotton, castor and millet, he said.
