Abstract: The word seed or seeds are used for all propagating materials. The seed is considered as most important input in agriculture. It is cheaper than other inputs like irrigation, fertilizer & plant protection measures. Quality of seed is maintained by including various practices, like proper winnowing, drying, bagging, and storage etc. The quality seed availability at proper time determines the agriculture growth. It is a well known fact that up to 85 % of the seeds used by farmer is farm saved seeds i. e. the seed protected and conserved by the farmer from his own harvest for future use. This seed is not of proper quality and does not kept in the proper storage condition. Due to these reasons, the germination of seed is affected adversely which eventually reduces the production and productivity of the crop. It is therefore necessary to improve the quality of farm saved seed. The present study was conducted in Indore block of Indore district, M. P. The random sampling technique was used for this study. Seed village program is running in two villages of Indore block by Department of farmer welfare and Agricultural Development, Govt. of M. P. Therefore, the sample was restricted to these Samlyachau and Khati Piplya villages. Out of these two villages 120 beneficiary farmers were selected randomly. The majority of respondents confronted low usefulness of seed village program followed by high and partial usefulness of seed village program in the area. The majority of respondents confronted partial perception of seed village program followed by low and perfect perception of seed village program in the area
