Abstract:
The present study comprised of various sources of wheat seed, replacement of seed by wheat growers and the management of wheat seed by the farmers of Udham Singh Nagar district of Uttarakhand. The shares of private seed plant owners have been found maximum (35%) followed by Tarai Development Corporation (27%), private seed dealers (20%) and self retained (15%). The shares of other sources like fellow farmers, relatives and small shopkeeper and state agriculture department has been found (2-3%). The overall seed replacement has been found to be about 35 percent. There was a direct relationship between the size of the farm and the replacement rate of seed, the seed rate has been slightly lower to the recommended level in the district. Determination of seed quality has been replaced by the experience of the farmers followed by the advice of the fellow farmer and the advice of the extension workers of Pantnagar University. The study suggested that extension agencies of the state Govt. of Uttarakhand and Pantnagar University educated the farmers about the benefits of quality seed and their replacement along with their procurement from the reliable source.
