Description

COVID-19 might have ushered in social distancing but it did bring together Indian seed industry companies to meet virtually, think of ways to optimize operations, put competition aside and collaborate to deliver quality seed to farmers’ doorsteps. While negotiating the hurdles posed by the lockdown, it is likely that a leaner and more efficient system will emerge that protects farmers from exploitation by traders who hike up prices in situations like these.
