In general, seeds farming system in Sugd province is not functioning, there is no adjusted system of seeds growing and multiplication of elite and first reproduction seeds. It depends on economic situation in the country and changes in agricultural production strategy.

Based on this fact ICPO «Jovid» offered multiplying the seeds for farmers and farm holdings. Since 2006 Shahristan and Ganchi regions became the area of receiving seeds.

In September – October, organization purchased 32100 kg of wheat seeds sort «Polpis» and «Krasnodar», 400 kg. Barley seeds sort «Luchak», in November – 33443 kg potatoes sort «Picasso». It is worth to mention the fact that seeds characteristics were tested by «Jovid» during two years on Demo plots.
