Republic Act 7308, otherwise known as the Seed Industry Development Act was enforced in 1992. The Bureau of Plant Industry then had been in the forefront before a bill relevant to Seed industry was enacted and became a law. The Philippine Seed Board (PSB), more popularly known as PSB was the office responsible in the approval and registration of crop varieties. It is the Director of the Bureau of Plant Industry that directly supervises the activities of PSB. Until finally, through RA 7308, the National Seed Industry Council was created replacing PSB.
