Agronomic Management for Better Seed Yield

This technology can be used for production of seed by public and private seed industries as well as progressive farmers to raise productivity of seed per unit area/money. The various steps involved are: sowing at normal time with normal spacing as practiced in case of Mung or Urad crop in various agro-climatic zones or regions. To optimize seed rate and appropriate fertilizer dose for wheat seed crop, a seed rate of 10-20% less than recommended for commercial crop and recommended fertilizer (NPK) is used. Low capital investment. High employment potential. Maximum use of local raw materials and manpower resources. Adaptable levels of sophistication.
