Warehousing/Storage Facility at regional & C&F agents offices:
In case of any kind of delay, the farmer may not postpone the sowing of his crop and may choose an alternate product. In order to address this kind of a situation Nuziveedu Seeds plans ahead by creating sufficient capacity to process the seeds and keeps them ready for marketing. Buffer stocks are maintained to overcome unexpected shortages in production and an unexpected rise in demand. Nuziveedu Seeds also has the provision to absorb excess production that might arise due to certain favorable conditions.
