The dyes namely Rhodamme-B, Fast green and Fuchsme in order of preference both for paddy and maize are the best dyes for seed colouring at 0.75% concentration. In this paper the possibility of developing colour standards for paddy and matfe seeds and their resultant implications for Indian seed industry has been discussed.
