TNAU Seed Centre :: Seed Productions

                         TNAU Seed Production activities

1. Nucleus seed production

Nucleus seed is the basic seed produced under the strict supervision of concerned crop breeder. Nucleus seeds are produced in different seed production centres of TN AU with better management to obtain higher quantity and quality of seeds. In case of high volume seed crops, one more stage of basic seed multiplication is carried out under the strict supervision of concerned crop breeder in order to get the required nucleus seeds. Nucleus seeds serve as basic material for breeder seed production.

2. Breeder seed production

 

To meet the increasing demand for production and supply of high volume low cost seed crops like cereals, pulses, oilseeds, cotton, forage crops and vegetables, etc., breeder seed production has been  increased substantially based on the demand of the crops. Breeder seed production is being taken up in 33 Breeder Seed Production centres for approximately 175 varieties of different crops.

3. Foundation and University Labelled seed production

Foundation seed production has become an important activity with significant enhancement in the quantity of seeds produced that has helped to supply genetically pure seeds to many public/private producers for further seed production and supply.
