Seeds…For some, it might be a small part of any fruit or a plant but actually seeds are saviours of mankind. This statement isn’t an exaggeration because seeds are the only source that gives birth to new plants on which our lives are dependent. So, one should be clear about the fact that seeds are one of the most valuable things on earth.
The inception story
A seed is an important part of a plant. It is a fertilized ovule of a plant that consists of a seed coat and an embryo with the capability of germination, which in turn produces a new plant. In simple words, seeds are the repositories that have genetic potential. Ten thousand years ago, the earliest farmers, living in the Fertile Crescent of countries surrounding the Nile River, the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf, worked to find the seeds that grew the hardiest crop. They discovered some seed types from the wild grains produced more plentiful harvests. They began selecting these types (today we call them varieties) and began cultivating them every season which ultimately led to the establishment of thriving stable communities, ending the nomadic lifestyle which was previously driven by a search for food.
The worldwide scenario
The seeds market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period 2020-2025. In 2019, North America the largest geographical segment of the market was studied and accounted for a share of around 35% of the market. The growing demand for grains, oils, and vegetables is a significant driver for the seeds market. The global population reached over 7.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach 9.9 billion by 2050. As a result, the global demand for food is likely to increase by 70%, due to rapid population growth, urbanization, and changing diets.
The indian market
Indian seed Industry is one of the most mature and vibrant one in the world currently occupying the 6th position with nearly 9000 Crore turnover. During the past 5 years the Indian Seed Industry has been growing at a CAGR of 12% compared to global growth of 6-7%. In value terms the major growth has come from the increased adoption of Bt cotton hybrids, single cross corn hybrids and hybrid vegetables. The volume growth has mainly come through increased Seed Replacement Rate in crops like Paddy and Wheat. Indian seed industry is undergoing wide ranging transformation including increased role of private seed companies, entry of MNCs, joint ventures of Indian companies with multinational seed companies and consolidations.
