Improvement in Agriculture (Quality Control)

The Seeds Act was passed by Parliament in 1966 to ensure that farmers get good
quality seeds. There is a Central Seed Testing Laboratory and 90 State Seed Testing Laboratories functioning in various states/union territories. There are also 19 seeds certification agencies. New varieties of seeds are notified by the Central Seed Committee. About 1775 new varieties have been notified so far. This has been possible due to the collection efforts of research scientists, seeds technologists, progressive farmers and administrators involved in agricultural development.
