The average productivity in wheat farming using certified seeds is 22,5 % higher than production with uncertified seeds. The total production costs in wheat production using certified seeds are 11,3 % higher compared to the wheat production using certified seeds. Gross margin in wheat production using certified seeds is 36 % higher compared to wheat production using uncertified seeds. Net profit per hectare in wheat farming using certified seeds is 26,5 % higher compared to wheat production using uncertified seeds.
