Seed Industry News : SGPC to produce organic seeds in Punjab

The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) is going to produce organic seed of different types of food grains, vegetables and pulses, and then distributing these among farmers for growing in their agricultural fields. The SGPC may produce these organic seeds under the brand name, 'Shiromani', on agricultural land owned by it.

The idea was floated at a recently-held meeting of senior SGPC officials with officials of the Punjab Agro's department, Punjab agriculture and horticulture departments and officials of Panchkula-based Regional Centre for Organic Farming.

The organic seeds idea was suggested by BS Sohal, joint director, agriculture, while Punjab Agro's managing director KS Pannu backed the idea, saying, "It will help making organic farming popular in Punjab."
