    Barcoding and tracking could hike productivity by 25%, say officials.

    More than half of all seeds sold in India are not certified by any proper testing agency, and are often of poor quality.

    The Centre now hopes to mandate uniform certification by pushing through a replacement to the Seeds Act, 1966, in the winter session of Parliament, and also by barcoding all seeds to ensure their traceability.

    This could increase overall agricultural productivity by up to 25%, Agriculture Ministry officials say.

    Monoculture is the growing of one type of crop in a given tract of land. It makes the cultivation of land easier. Because the crop to be planted is of the same type, the land is tilled in the same style. This makes cultivation and land preparation very simple.

    Sowing of seeds on the soil is easier as the seeds to be sowed are of the same type. This helps to save time as there is no careful selection of the type of seeds to be planted and where the seeds should be sowed.

    Weeding is a bit easier in monoculture as the plants type grown is specific. When the method of weeding is chosen, it is employed to all the crops on the tract of land.

    Harvesting and storage is easier too as the produce are packed easily with no fear of mingling with different products. The style of storage is also the same and this is due to the advantage of uniformity.

    Expansion of the size of the firm is easier and this helps in the improvement of produce, hence increment in profit and reduction in the cost used in production. Monoculture also tends to enhance the use of the other five modern methods of agriculture.
