    Numerous departments of agriculture and ICAR Research units located in Hyderabad will actively participate in the seed mela, educating visiting farmers about the diverse seed varieties showcased at the event. Moreover, a farmer-scientist interaction program will be organized to apprise farmers of the latest technologies emerging in the field of agriculture.

    This is the second edition of the seed mela in the past four years, following a two-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus lockdown in 2020. The event was reintroduced in 2021, driven by the commitment of Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University (PJTSAU), Sri Konda Laxman Telangana State Horticulture University (SKLTSHU), and select central research institutions to support farmers with high-yielding and superior-quality seeds.
