Dear Dr chandra sir, and all our forum farmer friends,
As stated earlier, Hybrids are natural only and they are not bad and lot of difference when compared with GM( genetically modified ) varieties.
Govt of India, like other governments, maintaining a seed bank, both male and female, for all the crops.
They, both male and female seeds will be numbered, and will be sold to the breeder companies, as and when they require.
For example male abcde will be cross polinated with female 12345, and like wise so many males with somany females, will be cross polinated and breeders will record the yields, note the disease resistance, like so many charectors. They study the produced in the markets, keeping quality etc, so many parameters, and finally release one or more varieties.
Here, I want to state, that m/s Known You Seed co, Taiwan has released one Hybrid papaya variety, named Redlady, during 1994_95. It was such a successful, still suitable another variety has not yet come and farmers are using same hybrid variety, and market demand is there for same variety. Even this company has not released another variety even after 22 years. Record.
In coconuts, tall varieties will be crossed with short varieties and short varieties will be crossed with tall varieties and if any good charector variety found, it will be released to the markets.
In this all most all universities and horticulture institutes are releasing some varieties. Like this, m/s Deejay nurseries have released some 3 varieties and from past 10 years, they are leaders in the south Indian farmers.
Here, one thing to be noted is, all these hybrids are natural products and not any synthetic and/or GM ,or any dangerous ones.
Hybrids are natural products only and they are safe. This is not only my opinion, and the undersigned discussed with several authorities and found safe. More over they as safe as straight varieties. Since they give more yield, more taste or more keeping quality, we should not think that they are injected with artificial qualities. I request all of us to discuss, gather information from authorities of Icar,Iari, Iihr, Uas, Tnau etc etc regarding the safety of hybrid varieties.
With best wishes, g.p.rao, farmer
