1. Supply of Quality Seed Paddy Production under Government Farms

Basic Seed Paddy Production

                Basic seed paddy (seed paddy of Foundation and Registered classes) of 27 varieties   is produced in government seed farms. Foundation seed paddy is produced using breeder seeds supplied by Rice Research and Development Institute Bathalagoda and its sub stations. Registered seed paddy (RSP) is produced by using so produced Foundation seed paddy (FSP). Certified Seed Paddy (CSP) which is used for the production of consumption paddy is produced by using Registered Seed Paddy.

                In a Yala season the cultivated extent of paddy is about 500000 ha and in a Maha season it is about      780,000 ha. Therefore about  1280000 ha of paddy is cultivated annually.

                For the cultivation of this extent, the annual certified seed paddy requirement is about 6400000 bu and for the production of this amount of CSP, 160000 bu of Registered Seed Paddy is required.
