Seeds play a crucial role in boosting agricultural productivity as they set the upper limit for crop yields and determine the efficiency of all other agricultural inputs within the farming system. High-quality seeds, possessing strong genetic and physical purity, germination rates, vigor and viability, are essential for realizing the potential of crop production under suitable and favourable agro-climatic conditions. The purity of commercial seeds is contingent on the genetic purity of the parental lines within the nucleus, breeder and foundation seeds in the seed multiplication system. The standardization of seed production technology for new and existing hybrids, taking into account agro-ecology and the most suitable regions for seed production, as well as employing appropriate techniques in seed production, ensures better seed setting, profitable seed yields, and the availability of top-quality seeds in the seed trade.
