Harjeet Singh’s advice, choose according to the region
Harjit Singh told in the conversation that farmers who want to start large-scale seed production, they should do research about which seed production would be right according to their area. This is because the emphasis is on different crops in different regions. Giving examples, Harjit Singh points out that as emphasis is placed on the cultivation of wheat, sugarcane and potato in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan produce large quantities of cotton.
Find out about which products or crops are in high demand and what is the price in the market according to the region. At the same time, farmers can start it at a low cost by forming groups among themselves at small level. Even if you start on a small scale, you can earn good profits.
