  2. SEED PRODUCTION AT FIELD LEVEL
    The allotment of Seed Production Programme of given targets is achieved by Field units by allotting the Foundation Seeds to the seed growers through technical staff in the compact areas. The seed production is conducted through contract seed gropwers that may be shareholder and non-shareholder growers. A list of seed growers (registered under Seed Production Program) containing all the information of growers and seed supplied to them is submitted to Haryana State Seed Certification Agency for the purpose of field inspection. As per provision contained in the Seed Act, 1966, the State Seed Certification Agency conducts inspection of the fields of the growers to ensure the quality of the seed. The technical staff of the Corporation also carry out the inspection of the seed fields of the growers at two different stages i.e. flowering stage and at the time of maturity of the crop. During these inspections, the field staff provides guidelines to the seed growers as to how to maintain their seed plots' isolation for genetic purity, free them from weed plants other crop plants and diseases etc. Although estimated yield given by Haryana State Seed Certification Agency representative is considered for receipt of raw seed yet maximum norms of raw seed yield per acre fixed by HSDC are also kept in mind. From Rabi 2021-22 Seed Production Programme has been allotted through Uttam Beej Portal as per guidelines of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare Department and Haryana State Seed Certification Agency (HSSCA).
