Improvement in Agriculture (Seeds)

India has transformed itself from a subsistence economy and food importing country to one, which is self-sufficient in foodgrains. Recognizing seed as the primary input for increasing agriculture production, the Central Government established the National Seeds Corporation (NSC) in 1963 and the State Farms Corporation of India (SFCI) in 1969 to encourage the production and distribution of certified seeds of various crops. Thirteen State Seed Corporations have also been established to supply improved seeds to farmers.
