BENGALURU, 22 September 2023: Namdhari Seeds Pvt. Ltd. (NSPL), a leading player in the agricultural industry, has taken a significant leap towards elevating Indian agriculture with the inauguration of a state-of-the-art greenhouse facility. This cutting-edge greenhouse, covering an impressive 58,000 square feet, is dedicated to advancing Plant Pathology and Seed Health operations, reinforcing NSPL's commitment to providing world-class agricultural solutions to Indian farmers.

The inauguration ceremony, attended by key stakeholders and industry experts, was marked by Gurmukh Roopra, Namdhari’s Group CEO, who highlighted the importance of scientific solutions in addressing the challenges faced by farmers. He stated, "We recognize that there are multiple challenges at the farmer level that need scientific solutions. As a result, we have taken steps to invest in forward-looking tools and solutions for our researchers, effectively reiterating our commitment to providing world-class products for our farmers and consumers well into the future."

The Plant Pathology units within this advanced facility will focus on the development of pest and disease-resistant crop varieties. This research endeavor aims to increase crop yields while reducing the reliance on pesticides, contributing to sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices. NSPL's commitment to promoting plant health aligns seamlessly with its mission to benefit both farmers and consumers.

Simultaneously, the Seed Health units will play a crucial role in developing, validating, and aligning pathogen testing protocols with international standards such as ISTA (International Seed Testing Association) and ISF (International Seed Federation). The facility will serve as a cornerstone for testing seeds for various purposes, including commercial use, research, and both domestic and foreign markets.

This significant milestone comes on the heels of NSPL's recent achievements in laboratory accreditation. Three of NSPL's laboratories, namely Quality Control (QC), Molecular Biology, and Seed Health, received accreditation from the prestigious National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL). This accomplishment places NSPL among the select few companies in India to hold accreditation for all three testing laboratories, reinforcing its commitment to excellence in agriculture.

"These dual milestones are a powerful testament to NSPL's unwavering dedication to excellence in agriculture. Our state-of-the-art greenhouse and NABL-accredited labs signify our commitment to providing the highest quality seeds and groundbreaking solutions. With these resources, we are now better equipped than ever to serve the needs of both farmers and consumers, ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future for all," commented Sameer Sawant, President (Seeds Business), Namdhari Seeds.

As NSPL continues to embrace future technologies, this new greenhouse facility and NABL accreditation serve as beacons illuminating the path to even greater success. With a firm commitment to scientific innovation and sustainable agriculture, NSPL aims to play a pivotal role in transforming the Indian agricultural landscape and empowering farmers with cutting-edge solutions.
