The Centre on Thursday asked the seed industry to bring in transparency in certification of truthful labelled seeds even as it assured that it would try to address all their concerns. Addressing a virtual event organised by Assocham, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala said, “Providing better seeds is a priority as it is the basic need to improve productivity, then come technology and other aspects.” There is a need to ensure that farmers get timely, affordable as well as quality seeds, and there can be no compromise in this regard, he said.
