Namdhari Seeds Pvt. Ltd. (NSPL)  recently opened a 58,000 square meter greenhouse  to enhance its existing plant pathology and seed health operations.

As a result, we have taken steps to invest in forward-looking tools and solutions for our scientists, effectively reaffirming our commitment to providing world-class products to our farmers far into the future. 

 At the same time, Seed Health units are committed to developing, validating and harmonizing pathogen testing protocols with international standards such as ISTA and ISF. The facility is a cornerstone for testing seeds for commercial purposes, research or domestic and foreign markets, the company said in a statement. Recently, three NSPL laboratories – Quality Control (QC), Molecular Biology and Seed Health laboratories – have been accredited by the prestigious National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL). 

 “These two milestones are a strong testament to NSPL’s unwavering commitment to agricultural excellence. Our state-of-the-art greenhouses and NABL-accredited laboratories demonstrate our commitment to providing the highest quality seeds and innovative solutions. With these resources, we are now better equipped than ever to meet the needs of both farmers and consumers and ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for all”, said Sameer Sawant, Head of Seed Business, Namdhari Seeds.
