Session ‐ VII Seed Stakeholders‐Scientists Interaction Chairman : Dr. J. S. Sandhu Assistant Director General (Seeds), ICAR, New Delhi Co‐Chairman : Dr. N. K. Dadlani Director, NSAI, New Delhi Rapporteurs : Dr. Geeta Bassi, PAU, Ludhiana : Dr. Ravi Hunje, UAS, Dharwad Date: 16.04.2012 Time: 9.00 A.M. The session started with opening remarks by Dr J.S.Sandhu. He stressed that public‐ private partnership is the need of the hour for the overall development of the Seed sector in the country. There were nine speakers for their presentations but only three made their deliberations. First speaker was Dr N. K. Dadlani who explained in details various workable areas for public‐private partnership in Seed Technology. He emphasised that for moving forward in seed sector private and public sector should work in harmony and with mutual trust in the field of seed research. He stressed upon equal partnership of both the sector (private and public). He appreciated the contributions made by public sector and informed that both sectors have realised to work together after the introduction of PPV & FR Act and to compete in the global seed regime. Commercialisation of the product developed is very essential. So it is necessary to establish a joint group of public and private sectors to work together to evolve policies in contract research, knowledge sharing, joint technology development and technology licencing. There is a need to constitute a small inclusive task force to identify need based areas. Some researchable suggested areas are: Newer areas for seed production Decrease the cost of seed production by off‐ season production To revisit the isolation distance based on scientific data and experimental evidences. Development of protocol for high quality seeds Economic and effective seed drying and storage protocols Rationalisation and validation of seed samples for quality tests Seed quality enhancement technology. Second deliberation was made by Dr D.B. Desai, MD Nav Bharat Seeds Gujarat on “Issues related to Seed Industry of Gujarat ” and shared his long association with the seed family in India. He emphasised: To organise small interactive sessions with farmers and dealers to match the farmer‐ breeder objective for variety and hybrids development. To compile the research outcome of last 25 years for the benefit of all the stakeholders. Research on cost of seed production and seed supply. Liberal supply of germplasm for use in R & D for the private sector. Representation of seed association in various committees related to seed. To involve private sector in seed Bank Scheme. Third speaker Dr. B.N. Basu from Hindustan Insecticides Ltd. a Govt. of India Undertaking explained his rich 70 Proceedings 2012‐13

experience working in public sector and some association with private sector. He emphasised that there are several areas for efficient development of seed sector. He endorsed the comments made by previous speakers. Dr. R.K. Chowdhury Former PC (NSP) informed about the revision of IMSCS, validation of technology developed by private sector in seed storage and drying. He emphasised on liberal and simple rules for getting the germplasms by private sector for R&D. Remarks by Co‐Chair: There are areas to work together in combination of vision and capacity of both the sectors. Farmers have become decision makers and ready to pay more for quality seeds, therefore best quality seed should reach the end user the FARMERS. Concluding Remarks by Chair: Both public and private sector should work together by mutual understanding their STRENGTHS and WEAKNESSES for making available the quality seed. To build partnership of trust and transparency smaller group should meet from both the sectors frequently. Identify the complimentary areas to work together. To bring more area under hybrid rice in India by cohesive partnership of public and private seed players to enhance the quantity vis a vis quality. To find alternate areas for seed production. Exposure visit of scientists to private seed industries to witness their infrastructure and other R&D programme. To keep pace with global development, emphasis should be given to HRD. The session ended with vote of thanks by Dr. S. Rajendra Prasad, PD, DSR, Mau. Proceedings 2012‐13 71
