Monitoring Committee inspects seed production field

Tamil Nadu Agricultural University and Agricultural Research Institutes identify and release high yielding crop varieties every year. So, seed farms are set up and expert seed is produced. 

The state government supplies the seeds to the seed farms for propagation and to the farmers for cultivation. An expert seed production monitoring committee has been set up to ensure that the seed farms established in this way strictly adhere to the field inspection standards and produce quality seeds.
