Who Are we

The Department of Seed Science & Technology was established on 30.6.2009 by upgrading Seed Production Unit which came into existence in 1980. The department is running M.Sc. in Seed Science and Technology. Besides teaching, the scientists are actively involved in seed technology research and production of nucleus, breeder, foundation and truthfully labeled seed to cater the demand of state department of agriculture and to some extent the farmers of the state. Apart from teaching and research, the department also undertakes extension activities in collaboration with Directorate of Extension Education and State Agriculture Department. The trainings on seed production technology i.e. production, certification and processing are also organized for the benefit of extension personnels of the Agricultural Department and the farmers of the State.
