The National Seed Association of India (NSAI) will hold the two-day Indian Seed Congress (ISC) - 2011 in Hyderabad beginning February 22.

The meet would “crystallise the industry's views and seek policy support from the Government to encourage investment in technology and infrastructure,” Mr G.V. Bhaskar Rao, Chairman of National Organising Committee of the conference, said here in a press release.

“It would also devise free market principles and streamline the deregulation process of new breed of crops,” he said.

The meeting, scheduled to be held at Hyderabad International Convention Centre at Madhapur, would be attended by about 700 delegates, including 50 from abroad.

The Indian seed industry, the fifth largest in the world with an estimated size of Rs 8,000 crore, is growing at 12-13 per cent annually. “The meeting will see signing of several tie-ups between Indian and international seed companies,” Mr M Harish Reddy, convener of ISC 2011, said.
