There are multiple factors that influence a good harvest. The quality of soil, the temperature, and availability of water, fertilizers and most importantly, the seeds used. Providing the best variety of seed to the producers and farmers is critical part of the food production value chain. One of the biggest issues with farm yield has been the non-availability of good quality seeds. Low quality seeds not only lead to less yield per hectare of land, the quality of the produce is also substandard. Plus the constant threat of diseases and pests is also a constant challenge.
Seed Certification is an internationally recognized system that helps in the preservation of genetic purity and identity of seeds. It is legally sanction by most countries and is one of the most recognized quality control systems that ensure that the seeds are both of good stock and also adhere to the set standards for them.
This is of key importance to all the major players in the food industry. From farmers and institutional growers, who get better and pest resistant yields, to procurement agencies who can be assured of the quality of the produce to government bodies and to the major players in the food processing industry, everyone needs to know the quality of the produce they are buying.
To improve the certification process and also bring all the farmers into the system, automation and use of IT plays a crucial role. Enabling the various aspects of the process and making it easily available to the producers is important in ensuring compliance to the certification process. Also the use of technology like Block Chain ensures there is complete transparency in the farm to fork value chain.

This enables the registered Producer, Distributor and Grower to manage their fees.
This is of key importance to the agencies and institutional producers who want to test the seeds procured and auto generate seed testing reports. Post the test meeting the prescribed parameters, each seed lot is provided a label that identifies its origin and certification.
