Promote Rural self sustainable micro seed ventures by Seed Business Ventures Model
Improving SRR in the targeted area
Rural entrepreneurship development mode through creation of seed business ventures
These ventures will be promoted in the areas of seed production, processing and marketing activities and shall be nurtured and handhold by PPP partnership. (ICRISAT, NSC, ICAR, and NGOs/CBOs)
The project creates alternate channel for seed delivery in target crops
Benefiting the farmers through increased productivity and profits.
Targeted crops – Groundnut, Chickpea, Pigoenpea and Paddy
Target Area – AP (Rayalseema)
Lack of availability of new and good quality seeds
Poor access to improved high yielding varieties
Legume seeds are not lucrative business due to low seed multiplication ratio, bulky nature and poor storage shelf life
The seed market controlled by middle men and local traders who fleece the farmers with poor quality and credit traps
Statutory regulations and cripple new variety releases
WHY SBI REQUIRED?
The present situation shows there is approximately a gap of 80% in demand –supply of ground nut seed, 30% in Chick pea seed and 70% in Pigeon pea seed. This gap in demand-supply provides opportunity to SBV. THE DEMAND & SUPPLY GAP
Size of the targeted seed market is approximately 3million qtls at A.P State itself.
Target area is four Rayalaseema districts of AP. i.e., Kurnool, Kadapa, Chittoor, Ananthapur and Mahaboobnagar initially.
Target area is very much suitable for both production and marketing.
Crops selected for this venture had vast market demand at target area.
Not much competition in terms of private players in the Selected crops seed sector (Ground Nut, Red gram and Bengal gram).
Major player in this sector is APSSDC (Andhra Pradesh State Seed
Development Corporation), a public sector corporation is unable to meet the growing demand even at present seed replacement rate (SRR), which is very less considering other crops.
