Authors(1) :-Achsah P. Prasad

Seed Varieties Content Management System is an Information Retrieval System and a Content Management System. It is an attempt to introduce Digitization and Modern Technology of ICTs (Information Communication Technologies) to the field of Agriculture. Scientists are inventing new seeds varieties, there is a need to help organize all the data they generate in a manner that will be easily accessible to them in the future or as and when needed, and also those interested to know about the research activities going on can view or browse through. It helps to have information in softcopy format to help distribute it. The data needs to be entered in only once and it will reflect wherever it needs to reflect in the Application thus reducing repetitive work. Even papers regarding these Seed Varieties can be uploaded and students in their final year can have a base from which they can start their research projects from.
