A Handbook of Seed Science and Technology

K Vanangamudi (Author) S Kavitha (Author) K Raja (Author)

Plant breeders continue to make significant advances in developing high yielding, adaptable and disease resistant crops. These advances, however, are not realized until an efficient seed production system is in place that rapidly increases genetically superior crops and makes them available to the consumer in large quantities as a reasonable cost. Successful seed production requires seed to be genetically pure, free of admixtures, and able to establish rapidly a uniform stand. Seed is the unique biological input in agriculture, which imbibes in it the productivity potential of the crop. Quality seed plays a major role in enhancing agricultural production. Sustained increase in agriculture production depends on the efficient system of quality seed production and distribution. Keeping the importance of quality seed for enhancing the field productivity, an effort is made to write a "Handbook of Seed Science and Technology” A treasure of knowledge and information in Seed Science and Technology is documented in this book, which is useful for all the Teachers and Scientists of this field. In addition, professionals in seed industry, certification personnel, analysts, and the seed technologists will discover convenient access to a wealth of information in this volume.
