The ever increasing demand for quality seed requires persistent efforts from all stakeholders to ensure stability in supply chain. Critical introspection of seed production constraints felt in certain crops would help in achieving sustained seed production to match the demand so that country would be able to meet the projected food requirement for the coming decade. Since food production has to be increased significantly to meet the demand of the population which is steadily increasing in geometric proportion, we need to build a stable quality seed production of major field crops

The text “Seed production techniques of major crops” contains 15 chapters - 1. Plant variety testing, release, notification and maintenance, 2. Principles of seed production. 3. Concept of genetic purity in seed production, 4. Seed production of cereals, 5. Pulses, 6. Oilseed crops, 7. Fibre crops, 8. Forage crops, 9. Root crops, 10. Fruits and vegetables, 11. Spices, 12. Cole crops, 13. Flower crops, 14. International seed organizations, 15. PVP & FR Act. It is hoped that this text will help in adoption of scientific and uniform procedure for production of quality seeds of major crops. This will also be a source of knowledge to the students of undergraduate and postgraduate, young scientists and persons who are engaged in seed production.

Dr. O.P. Verma is working as Associate Professor in the Department of Genetics and Plant breeding, NDUA & T, Kumarganj Faizabad (UP).
