Always use 40-kg seed per acre; however, for PBW 869 and Unnat PBW 550 varieties, 45-kg seed per acre should be used. The seed should be purchased from a reliable source, preferably PAU or govt seed-producing agencies. The farmers are advised to use certified seed in case these are procured from private agencies.
