SEED PRODUCTION PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION Seed is the basic, vital and central input in agriculture. Quality seeds of appropriate variety in sufficient quantity are required to raise productivity. The present seed replacement rates in J&K varies from 2.5-30 per cent for various crops. Seed replacement rate has strong positive correlation with the productivity and productivity of crops. It has been realized that quality seed of improved varieties can alone increase the crop yields to the extent of 25-30 per cent over old and obsolete varieties. Production of quality seed meeting the prescribed standards of genetic and physical purity, seed health and vigour, viability and storability are specialized scientifically based activities requiring focused attention. The Mega Seed Project was sanctioned in the year 2005-06 and the funds were received in April, 2006. Since its inception the necessaries infrastructure have been developed for upgrading the seed related activities of the University.
