Recommendations for farmers (in brief with title)
1.     Effect of micronutrient application on seed yield and quality of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.)
        It is recommended for the farmers of South Saurashtra Agro-cimatic Zone associated with seed production of coriander are advised to apply FeSo4@25 kg/ha as soil application at the time of sowing or foliar application of FeSo4@ 0.5% (75 g/15 liter) + 0.1% Citric Acid (15gm/15 liter) at 30 & 45 DAS in addition to recommended dose of fertilizer (20:10:0 NPK kg/ha) to obtain higher seed yield with high germination and seedling vigour.
ખેડૂતોપયોગી ભલામણ 
દક્ષિણ સૌરાષ્ટ્ર ખેત આબોહવાકીય વિસ્તારના ધાણામાં બીજ ઉત્પાદન સાથે સંકળાયેલા ખેડૂતોને સલાહ આપવામાં આવે છે કે ધાણામાં સારા બીજાંકુરણ અને બીજાંકુરણ ઓજ્વાળું મહત્તમ બીજ ઉત્પાદન માટે વાવણીના સમયે ભલામણ કરેલ ખાતરના (૨૦:૧૦:૦૦ કી.ગ્રા. નાઈટ્રોજન : ફોસ્ફરસ : પોટાશ પ્રતિ હેક્ટર) પૂરતા જથ્થા સાથે વધારાનો ફેરસ સલ્ફેટ ૨૫ કિલો/હેક્ટર મુજબ વાવણીના સમયે આપવાની અથવા ફેરસ સલ્ફેટ ૦.૫% (૭૫ ગ્રામ/૧૫ લીટર) +  સાઈટરીક એસીડ ૦.૧% (૧૫ ગ્રામ/૧૫ લીટર) નો જથ્થો વાવણી બાદ ૩૦ અને ૪૫ દિવસે છંટકાવ કરવાની ભલામણ કરવામાં આવે છે.          
2.    Study the fresh seed dormancy in sesame
       Sesame growing farmers of Saurashtra region are advised that freshly harvested seeds of white seeded sesame varieties GT-2, GT-3, TKG 22, Pragati and GT-5 produced in the previous season could not be utilized for sowing, as seed dormancy was found in these varieties and it was released after 115, 115, 95, 105 and 105 days after harvesting, respectively. However, black seeded variety GT 10 could be utilized for sowing in the next season, as it released the dormancy after at 35 days after harvesting (DAH).
ખેડૂતોપયોગી ભલામણ
આથી સૌરાષ્ટ્ર વિસ્તારના તલ ઉગાડતા ખેડૂતોને સલાહ આપવામાં આવે છે કે સફેદ તલની જતો જીટી-૨, જીટી-૩, ટીકેજી-૨૨, પ્રગતિ અને જીટી-૫ માં કાપણી બાદ સુષુપ્તતા અવસ્થા અનુક્રમે ૧૧૫, ૧૧૫, ૯૫, ૧૦૫ અને ૧૦૫ દિવસ બાદ દૂર થતી હોય આ જાતોના તાજા બિયારણનો વાવેતર માટે ઉપયોગ ત્યાર પછીની આવનાર ઋતુમાં કરવો નહિ. જયારે કાળા તલની જાત ગુજરાત તલ-૧૦ માં સુષુપ્તતા અવસ્થા કાપણી બાદ ૩૫ દિવસમાં દૂર થતી હોય તેનો ઉપયોગ ત્યાર પછીની ઋતુમાં વાવેતર તરીકે કરી શકાય.

       It is informed to scientific community that onion seed may be stored in cold storage (7ºC ± 2ºC) condition packed with cloth bag or polyethylene bag (500 guage) with seed treatment (Carbendazim 2g/kg seed or Mancozeb 2g/kg seed or Thiram 3g/kg seed or Neem leaf powder 10g/kg seed) or without seed treatment for a period of 2 years without deterioration in germination and seed vigour.
2.    Seed viability in soyabean (Gliycine max (L.) Merr.) under different storage condition and seed treatments.
      It is informed to scientific community that soybean seed may be stored under cold storage storage (7ºC ± 2ºC) condition in cloth bag with seed treatment of Mancozeb 2g/kg seed or Neem leaf powder 10g/kg seed for a period of 2 years without deterioration in germination and seedling vigour.
3.   Qualitative and quantitative evaluation of seed vigour and viability by Tetrazolium test in pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L) R. Br.].
      It is informed to scientific community that pearl millet seed may be stored in air tight plastic containers for a period of 16 months without deterioration of germination and seedling vigour.
4.   Performance of neem products on the storability of mungbean (Vigan radiata (L.) Wilczek.).
      It is informed to scientific community that mungbean seed may be stored in normal condition packed in HDPE bags (500 guage) with seed tratment of cloth bag and polythylene bag (500 guage) with seed tratment (Neem seed kernal powder 5 to 10 g/kg seed or Neem Cake 5-10 g/kg seed) for a period of 2 years without deterioration of germination and seedling vigour.
5.   Effect of organic seed treatment on storability of wheat
     It is informed to scientific community that wheat seed may be stored under ambient storage condition packed with cloth bag with seed treatment of Neem Leaf Powder @ 2-5g/kg of seed or Sweet Flag Rhizome Powder @ 2-5g/kg of seed or Neem Seed Kernel Powder @ 2-5g/kg seed for a period of 20 months without deterioration in germination and seedling vigour.
