Navdanya to set up community seed banks at Singur, Nandigram

Kolkata, (PTI) Navdanya, a Delhi-based NGO, is keen on developing community seed banks in West Bengals Singur and Nandigram as part of its Organic India campaign to save, breed and multiply native seeds and prevent bio-piracy of indigenous seeds and plants.

“Join the Seed Satyagraha to stop patents on seeds and patents on life. Boycott GM seeds like Bt. cotton,” the NGO Director Dr Vandana Shiva said expressing hope that organic seeds will further spread agro-ecological farming bringing joy to farmers of Singur and Nandigram.
