India: Namdhari Seeds unveils greenhouse for plant pathology

Namdhari Seeds recently inaugurated a greenhouse facility dedicated to enhancing its existing Plant Pathology and Seed Health operations. This facility spans 58,000 square feet, designed to adhere to international standards and incorporate the latest technological advancements.

Speaking at the inauguration, Gurmukh Roopra, Namdhari’s Group CEO, said, “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.”

In this facility’s Plant Pathology units, NSPL will focus on developing pest and disease-resistant crop varieties, promising higher yields and reduced reliance on pesticides. This endeavor aligns seamlessly with NSPL’s core ideals of promoting plant health for the betterment of both farmers and consumers. Simultaneously, the Seed Health units will dedicate their efforts to developing, validating, and aligning pathogen testing protocols with international standards like ISTA and ISF. This facility will serve as the cornerstone for testing seeds for commercial purposes, research, or domestic and foreign markets.

Recently, three of NSPL’s laboratories—Quality Control (QC), Molecular Biology, and Seed Health achieved accreditation from the prestigious National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL). This positions NSPL among the elite few companies in India with accreditation for all three testing laboratories. As NSPL continues to embrace future technologies, this new greenhouse facility and NABL accreditation serve as beacons, illuminating the path to even greater success.
