Sri Lanka has initiated arrangements for the export of various types of seeds for the first time ever, marking a significant milestone for the country’s agricultural sector. 

The Department of Agriculture has confirmed the successful testing of several species of seeds, including chillies, eggplant, green chillies, ladies fingers, and maize, which are set to be exported soon.

It is also reported that there is a significant surge in demand for these seed varieties from many foreign countries.
