Breeder Seed Production
Seed is one of the most vital and critical inputs for increasing agricultural production. After release of a variety, its seeds have to be multiplied in sufficient quantity which takes 3-4 generations before it reaches to the farmers for commercial use. During multiplication cycles, care has to be taken so that the variety does not degenerate but maintains its original characteristics.
For achieving this goal the seed production programme becomes an exhaustive task requiring high technical skills, financial investments and proper methodology and care. It is expected that the nucleus/ breeder seed should be of high purity, because the genetic purity in subsequent generation will largely depend upon the quality of nucleus/breeder seed. Hence, the nucleus and breeder seed are the back-bone of the seed programme.
In view of this, nucleus/breeder seed production in the country is coordinated through All India Coordinated Research Project on Chickpea at different SAUs as per DAC indent under the supervision of qualified breeders.

Nucleus/breeder seed production of chickpea varieties is coordinated by All India Coordinated Research Project on Chickpea through State Agricultural Universities as per DAC indent. This year (2014-15), 7464.28q of Breeder Seed of 73 Varieties was produced against DAC Indent of 6741.60q and allocation of 7433.98q.

The Breeder production status in chickpea since 2010-11 is given below:
