Ranchi: Jharkhand is likely to get a new seed corporation within two months. The government has already started working on it to implement it as soon as possible.


The new corporation will function as an independent body, which will have several technical posts, besides a Managing Director.
The Director Committee, Jata Shankar Choudhary said, “Since we don’t have a seed corporation, we are depending on other states. With this new corporation we would not only be self-reliant but would export as well.”


By formation of new seed corporation the money for purchasing seeds would not go out of the state and that amount would be used to promote production. And the farmers would have high quality seeds, he added.
