BIHAR RAJYA BEEJ NIGAM LIMITED


In order to achieve self-sufficiency and self-reliance in meeting the growing demand of quality seeds of high yielding varieties from the farmers of the State at a reasonable price, the Bihar Rajya Beej Nigam Limited (BRBN) was incorporated on July 18, 1978 under the Companies Act, 1956 by the Government of India with the financial assistance of World Bank under the Second National Seed Project.

Seeds are the primary basis for human sustenance. Majority of human calories comes from seeds, especially from cereals, legumes and nuts. Seeds also provide most cooking oils, many beverages and spices and some important food additives. They are the repository of the genetic potential of crop species and their varieties resulting from the continuous improvement and selection over time. Crop improvement and the delivery of high quality seeds and planting materials of selected varieties to growers is necessary for ensuring improved crop production and meeting growing environmental challenges. Food security therefore is dependent on the seed security of farming communities.
