About Indian Seed Congress:
The Indian Seeds Congress attracts participation by representatives of all major stakeholders including industry (seed & allied), policy makers, developmental agencies, scientific community and farmers’ organizations. The Congress delegates include industry leaders from more than 15 countries. The Indian seed industry continues to strive to exceed the expectations of the Indian farmers by investing in state of art R&D programmes and infrastructure to develop high performing products for our farmers. This is done through regular consultations by the industry with the concerned stakeholders. An important exercise in this regard is the Indian Seed Congress, an annual forum organized by the National Seed Association of India (NSAI), the apex organization representing the Indian seed industry, to review the status; deliberate on the new technological advances and the barriers to technology development and introduction; showcase new product range and services and network for better business development.
