Dear Umender Dutt Ji

Please read the previous post. Central, Regional and State Seed Reserve Banks are being planned at the Varansi Workshop on 3-4 February, 2013. Your organisation may spearhead creation of such a heritage in Panjab, this is my humble request. This is a so-called Green Revolution leader state so a delegation from here of Traditional Seed Promoting Organisations would be so important.
