Explanation:

There is a National Seed Policy of 2002, so statement 1 is not a constraint.

The private sector does supply quality seeds of vegetables, although in smaller volumes. So statement 2 is not a constraint.

Farmers often prefer to use their own preserved seeds due to the demand and supply gap. So statement 3 is indeed a constraint.
