Organic Seeds Market: Introduction
The landscape of agriculture across the globe include a variegated growing practice which can be abridged into three main categories i.e. organic, conventional and genetically engineered (transgenic or genetically modified). Organic seed is produced by adhering a set guidelines, which prohibit the use of synthetic products or chemicals. Conventional production of seeds includes the use of chemical herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and fertilizers. However, organic seeds are produced using biofertilizers, organic manure, and biopesticides, hence less chemical impact on the environment which is also, one of the most compelling reasons among consumers to choose organic products over the conventional products. Genetically modified crops are often in the discussion for their widespread adoption, majorly in commodity sectors, particularly in North America and Latin America region. However, the organic sector has grown meteorically over the past decade and was valued at around US$ 80 Bn dollars in 2015, while global agricultural land for organic increased from 11 million hectares in 1999 to 50.9 million hectares in 2015 which clearly reflects an increasing consumer demand for organic certified products across the globe. Moreover, consumers are becoming more aware of the quality and safety of the food they eat. In addition, people are concerned about the negative effects of pesticides, fertilizers, and drugs on their health. Hence, organic agriculture is a viable solution to all these concerns, which has resulted in an escalating demand for organic seeds in the market and is anticipated to drive the growth of global organic seeds market over the forecast period.
