US-based agriculture company, Corteva Agriscience has come forward to serve Indian farmers by providing quality paddy seeds. Accordingly, it launches paddy seeds under Brevant Brand for rice farmers in India.
Brevant Brand Paddy Seeds
Corteva Agriscience, an American agricultural chemical, and seed company announced the launch of new paddy seeds known as Brevant seeds in India. For now, farmers in states of Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar will have access to this seed range. The seeds will be available through selected business collaborators in these states. Further, the company plans to expand the distribution soon to other states as well.
Address to Different Growing Needs
Dr KV Subbarao, Managing Director, South Asia announced the launch of this hybrid paddy seed. Consequently, he stated that the new variety will help farmers to address their different growing needs. Nonetheless, Corteva Agriscience already launched hybrid seed brand for corn, previous year in India. This robust germplasm of corn has marked itself in the history of seed innovation. This seed quality may help tackle climate change and soil quality deterioration that currently affects farmers across India.
Dr KV Subbarao added that their deep knowledge in hybridization has enabled them to provide superior paddy seeds, which are developed according to the right environment. Additionally, the company aims to provide better choices and more access to its market-leading high yielding hybrid seeds to Indian farmers.
In conclusion, this is the second brand of seed that Corteva has brought to India after corn. The seed will help farmers in a better yield of rice.
