Production & Protection of Seed Spices
E. V. D. SastryK. S. Shekhawat
Seed spices are the winter season annuals whose fruit (seed) is used as spice. About twenty seed spices are cultivated and almost all of them are grown in India, four of thse namely coriander, cumin, fennel and fenugreek are cultivated extensively and hence are called major seed spices. India is the leader in production, consumption and export of seed spices. Among the Indian states, Gujarat and Rajasthan lead in the area and production of these spices. Unfortunately these crops are still cultivated on marginal lands with almost nil to little inputs. In many a cases, local varieties are still cultiviated with very low production potential. It is therefore right time we take the stock of the situation. In an effort to know the status of seed spices research and development, eminent researchers from across the country have been invited to contribute their findings and views which led to the present compilation. The present book contains chapters that are written by who’s who in seed spices research in India. The opening chapter “Seed spices research: path less treated” tries to analyze the problem of seed spices research vis-à-vis with the research in cereals. The available germplasm collection in India are analyzed critically in the chapter on “Evaluation and coservation of seed spices Genetic resources: status and issues”. The research and accomplishments of All India Coordinated Research Project on Spices in seed spices sphere is very well presented in a chapter “Research efforts of All India Coordinated Research Project on Spices for productivity of seed spices. The need for good agricultural practices has been presented in chapter on ‘Good agricultural practices: Need for clean seed spices production”, similarly an analysis on quality aspects is presented in chapter by “Quality aspects of seed spices for export”. “Studies on seed spices improvement” looks at the methods adopted for genetic improvement and ways to modify the same for better genetic gains. Besides these, several chapters devote to look at the research findings on organic way of production of seed spices, Nutrition management, disease and pest management in seed spices. Unless the findings of researches reach the farmers and are adopted by them they are of little value. Hence several chapters are devoted to understand the problem of adoption of improved methods of seed spices cultivation. Similarly a chapter on “Marketing of important seed spices in Rajasthan” looks at the marketing of seed spices. Seed spices contain essential oils which are extracted and marketed as value added product. The commercial exploitability of the essential oils of seed spices is discussed in “Commercial exploitation of essential oils obtained from seed spices for use in aromatherapy”. The book is expected to be of much help to all those connected with seed spices. It is hoped that this book will find acceeptance with scientists, industrialists, lanners as well as students connected or interested in seed spices. ..more

Principles of Seed Technology
B. L. Jana
Seed is the most basic and prime input of agricultural production, and is the most important component of all inputs used in agricultural crop productivity increase. Strictly speaking, seed is an embryo, a living organism embedded in the supporting or the food storage tissue. Its importance is given to the biological existence, whereas in grain the importance is given to the supporting tissue of the economic produce. The emphasis should be given on the quality seed production of different field crops to cater the need of the farmers, even of the remotest corner of the nation. This book “Principles of Seed Technology” written in nine chapters, is the most important subject of Agricultural Sciences, which deals with Seeds and Quality Seeds, Seed Varieties, Production Techniques of Nucleus, Breeder, Founder and Certified Seeds, Maintenance & Multiplication of Pre–release and Newly Released Varieties in Self & Cross–pollinated crops, Seed Scenario & Seed Industry, Seed Viability, DNA Fingerprint on Identification of Crop Variety, Seed Certification, Hybrid Seed Production in Vegetable Crops, Seed Production & Seed Industry, Seed Supply as per Requirement of Major Crops in India, Indian Seed Sector–the way Forward, etc. supporting with research findings in depth. Quality seed has played a pivotal role in India’s First Green Revolution (1967–1977) occurred during mid sixties. Now we need it for a Seed Green Revolution to meet the growing demand for our increasing population to be 1.7 billion (170 crore) by 2050, and we shall need to double our food production.
