Seed Science and Technology has been established as a full-fledged Department in 2013 bifurcating the Genetics and Plant Breeding department in order to cater dedicated and better service as well as awareness among the farmers of the Northern parts of West Bengal about use of quality seed and their production technology.
- Teaching, Research and Extension in the field of Seed Science and Technology
Teaching of Undergraduate, Post graduate and Doctor of Philosophy students. Different courses like Crop Physiology and Principles of Seed Technology for Bachelors’ and all approved courses of seed science for Masters’ and Doctoral degree programmes are being offered.
a) Research: • Thrust areas under research programme are i) Genetic purity and seed quality, ii) Seed enhancement for unfavourable conditions, iii) Improvement of seed storability, iv) Standardizing processing needs in major field crops. b) Research projects: • Improvement of traditional non-Basmati aromatic rice genotypes of northern part of West Bengal through induced mutation- BARC, Mumbai (Ongoing) • Tribal Sub Plant under MEGA-SEED Project, UBKV- ICAR (Ongoing)
• Seed Production through Farmers’ Participatory mode since 2006 • Training on seed production technologies of major field crops of northern part of West Bengal • Organizing trainings on Quality Seed Production of Field Crops under Tribal Sub Plant of MEGA-SEED Project, UBKV, Pundibari • Formation of Self-help Group / Farmers’ Society very involved in Quality Seed Production to develop the village based seed enterprises
