Fruit & vegetable seeds market by form, organic seeds is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Organic fruit and vegetable seeds are eco-friendly seeds that do not require the use of pesticides, fertilizers, growth regulators, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The general principle of organic production is to protect the environment, minimize soil degradation and erosion, decrease pollution, optimize biological productivity, and maintain soil fertility.

The increased demand for organic seed is an important opportunity for organic seed growers in various developing countries to scale up their operations, if their production capacity allows, to fulfill more seed contracts with seed companies. Furthermore, the increased demand for organic seed can be attributed to a combination of events, including panic over food supply chain disruptions and food security concerns, and growing interest in gardening among consumers. The demand for organic products in North America and worldwide has been growing explosively over the past decade. According to the USDA’s Economic Research Service, the consumer demand for organically produced goods has shown double-digit growth in recent years. Thus, due to such an increasing trend for organic products among consumers, the organic products are now available in various conventional grocery stores in developed and developing countries, which usually has premium prices over conventional products. These factors have driven the adoption of organic fruit & vegetable seeds among farmers.

The genetically modified segment of the fruit & vegetable seeds market is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The benefits of adoption of GM seeds are becoming popular among the farmers, due to which the market for it is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.
