Sustainable Rice Seed Production: A Successful Experiment

Md Mominul Islam

Abstract


This work is about the production of rice seed following two stages of experiment researching two verses of the Holy Qur’an. The verse 47 of Chapter 12 has been researched, and paddy was left in the ears for 8 months at the first stage. Then, verse 95 of Chapter 6 has been considered. The results show that rice seed was not infected or damaged during this time. Germination process was successful in which seeds grew shoots without using any chemicals and cold storage system. Marginal farmers shall be highly benefitted using this method which is environment-friendly, very easy, and cheap. In addition, the experimented seed is organic which shall save the planet from greenhouse gas emission, whereas the traditional seed production process requires chemical use to save seeds from pesticides, and cool storage system that consumes power producing carbon. Furthermore, local seeds are likely to adjust to the climate easily where imported seeds some of the cases encounter problems. The experimental seeds are fitted environmentally, economically, and ethically that can be addressed as sustainable seed for the less privileged farmers. Importantly, the experimented method of seed production can be applied for all corns-related crops. Application of the experimented method can save the world from global warming and offer us a viable agricultural production system.
