About this Item: Enkay Publishing House, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Making better seed varieties has everything to do with better genes. These genes are the codes of instruction found in every living thing codes that tell organisms to make substances for growth, survival and many other functions or traits. Plant biotechnology has enabled researchers to take beneficial genes from selected organisms and introduce them into plants, thus making better varieties. Some examples include biotechnology crops that are resistant to pests, more nutritions, or contribute to end products of other industries, such as biofuels. It`s not easy. Making biotechnology seeds available to farmers across the world involves a long, costly process. Table of Contents Preface Importance of proper seed selections Seed systems and plant genetic resources for food and agriculture Agriculture system interventions: Important principles Structural change in the biotech seed and chemical industrial complex The Magnitude and impacts of the biotech and organic seed price premium Antimicrobial potential of plant seed extracts multi-drug resistant methicillin resistant Seed germination and dormancy Promoting the growth and development of small holder seed enterprises for food security crops Seed diversity in organic agriculture Seed coats: structure, development, composition and technology Self-Incompatibility in vegetable seed breeding Influence of seed maturity stages on germ-inability and seedling vigor in groundnut Seed moisture: recalcitrant vs orthodox seeds Seed production and germ-inability of sucurbit crops Somatoplastic sterlity as a cause of seed failure after inter-specific hybridization Bibliography Index Printed Pages: 288.

Organizations and laws. 11. Books on seed science and technology. Agriculture and all crop husbandry begins and ends with seed. From being a mere propagule, seed has been made omnipotent by several technological revolutions that are incorporated into it. Hence, seed is the best extension specialist in promotion of agriculture. Seed today is knowledge in itself, just like a computer microchip, it stores vast amount of information. Study of seed science skims the surface of this knowledge pool. Seed science encompasses several schools of thought viz., seed biology, dispersal, dormancy, production, processing, testing, tagging, packing, storage, distribution, marketing and legislation. An avid reader in pursuit of acquiring information about seed would find it exhaustive. Hence the book attempts to satiate the curiosity of an intrepid academic in the form of question and answer.

Crop variety improvement and quality seed supply are the two prime elements determining the success of modern agriculture. During the Green Revolution era, India's agriculture witnessed spectacular growth through the introduction of seeds of high yielding varieties. Later, the coarse cereals, pulses, oilseeds and vegetables emulated the success with the introduction of hybrid seeds. Despite the huge institutional framework for seed production, the availability of quality seeds continues to be a major problem for the farmers. As a result, they prefer to rely on farm saved seeds. The seed replacement rate continues to remain in the range of 2-10 for certain crops, which is below the desired level of 20 per cent for the most crops. Seed replacement rate has a strong positive correlation with the productivity and production of crops. Village based seed banks provide an alternative solution to this problem and help farmers become self-reliant. The superior varieties/hybrids developed and released for cultivation need to be properly maintained for their genetic and physical purity in order to exploit their full genetic potential. The genetic purity in subsequent generations largely depends upon the quality of nucleus/breeder seed .For achieving this goal, the maintenance breeding becomes an important task. To accelerate agricultural development, it is necessary to protect the Plant Breeder's Rights to stimulate investments for research and development of new plant varieties. Such protection is likely to facilitate the growth of the seed industry will ensure the availability of high quality seed and planting material to the farmers. To give effect to the aforesaid objectives, the Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmer's Right Bill was introduced in the parliament. Though the seed quality is a complex phenomenon, technologies to handle nearly each and every factor affecting the quality seed have been developed. For proper utilization of advanced technologies or innovation like designer seed should be put into practice. A designer seed could reduce pesticide on crops, enhance germination under biotic and abiotic stress and improve the vigour of seedlings. IPM technology is more relevant for sustainable quality seed production which combines biological control, host plant resistant, appropriate farming practices and minimize the use of pesticides. Also, the proper storage of planting material is a major problem in India, where the combination of high temperature and high relative humidity cause rapid deterioration of seed quality. The innovative new technologies enable farmers, seed producers, and seed distributors to effectively store seeds without losing the viability and germinability. The book has been organized with the available information on recent techniques of seed production management on various field crops in a s. Seller Inventory # 124638
