Seeds of Improved Hybrids and High Yielding Varieties (HYV) of Crops

by D.S. Thakur
Professor of Agricultural Economics
Regional Research Station, Bajaura

The hybrid and high yielding varieties of seeds have turned out to be the seeds of prosperity for farmers. The location-specific hybrid and HYV seeds from reliable sources must be procured, multiplied and supplied to farmers for increasing their production, income and sustainability of farming. This needs to be done on a large scale to cover all farmers. The Department of Agriculture must encourage and train progressive farmers to produce hybrid and HYV seeds in the hills on a large scale for distribution to increase agricultural production substantially.
