Description

Efficient production of high-quality seed for research is an important activity for modern breeding and genebank programs. To bolster this activity, ICRISAT has modernized its seed processing, preparation and grain quality data collection facilities with state-of-the-art machinery and equipment which was inaugurated by Dr Jacqueline Hughes, Director General, ICRISAT, on 18 December. These facilities, set up by the Crop Improvement Operations Team (CIOT) and Genebank, are part of the institute’s efforts to modernize crop breeding and genetic resources conservation. The seeds are threshed, dried, cleaned and graded by size and sorted by color in the facility.
