About Discipline

Seed is one of the important inputs in agriculture. As farmous proverb says 'As you sow, so you reap', crop productivity depends on the quality of seed sown. Use of good quality seed will increase the production by 20-25%.

In mysuru district, a wide range of cereals, pulses, oil seed and commerical crops are gown. The field crops are grown on 3.72 lakh hectares for which 75,000 q of new seed is required every every year. In major crops like paddy and ragi only 42% to 5% of the total seed demand is being met in the district. IN pulses and oilseed crops there is a large gap between seed demand and seed supply

This is maily because ,

  • Less awareness of importance of good quality seed among the farmers
  • Area under seed production in the district is low compared to seed demand
  • Very few farmers are involed in seed production programme
  • Farmers are not aware that seed production fetches higher profit than commerical crop production

Hence, Seed Technology palys a major role in improving crop productivity and profitability in the district.
