COMPONENT

EXPLANATION IN SUPPORT OF COMPONENT

1

Infra-structural Development of 

Farms

 To ease the quality seed availability to   the farmers

2

Revolving fund for selected Govt.

Farms

Monitory arrangement for farmers seed production programme under fourth

channel of seed production

3

Strengthening of Seed Testing

 Laboratory

Number of seed samples are exceeding

due to increasing seed production &

 supply programme. It is necessary to strengthen

 Seed Testing Lab.

4

Etablishment of New Seed Testing Laboratories

At present there is only one STL under

Govt. control with limited capacity of

3000 samples per annum. This compels to

 establish one more laboratory for seed testing.

10. JUSTIFICATION :

·        ·        Selected Agriculture farms are being taken during 2001-02 for infra-structural development of 15 Govt. agricultural farms under seed production plan. Rs.150.00 lakh have been proposed  for the purpose.

·        ·        Seed production programme on model Govt. farms : For enhancing Foundation seed Prod. on 11 Farms provision of Rs. 110.00 lakh have been made .

·        ·        Strengthening of Seed Testing Laboratories: For strengthening of one Seed Testing Lab.a provision of 30.00 lakh have been made for the year 2001-02
