Andhra Pradesh is one of the leading seed producing States in the country, comprising seven (7) distinct agro-climatic zones. The extensive network of seed growers all across the state, with a rich tradition of seed production and varietal improvements has enabled a strong core production of crops at comparatively lower costs with higher yields per unit.

The Corporation was set up with active joint participation of Government of Andhra Pradesh, Government of India through National Seeds Corporation, and shareholder farmers in the State. The Government of Andhra Pradesh extended equity support of Rs.107.51 Lakhs (38.99%)
