Rajhans 1, Buranda 1, Chandan and Kundan bred and produced by MRC Seeds are non-GMO, untreated and particularly suitable for organic farming. This is particularly possible due to the high tolerance to bollworms and diseases. Also added is the fact that MRC Seeds varieties are highly adaptable to a wide range of climatic conditions and gives a fair yield irrespective of the of the season.
As a result of indiscriminate and heavy use of harmful pesticides for cotton pests, the resistance of insects against these toxic chemicals boosted and thereby compelled a further increase in use of insecticidal sprays, creating a vicious cycle and escalating cost of cultivation. Organic farming will definitely help in reversing this trend and preventing further damage to the environment.
