Seeds are the main element for agricultural production and they
are essential. The productivity of agriculture and the quality of product is
highly dependent on the variety of the seeds. So, it is vital to breed new exceptional
plant variations using dominant gene combinations. These superior quality seeds
are then further produced and distributed. The improvement of the seeds of the core
crops such as rice, wheat, barley and soybean generally need extensive amounts
of time, efforts, energy and money.
Rice is the most extensively consumed food in major parts of the
world. Major cultivated species of rice are the grass species Oryza sativa
(Asian rice) and Oryza glaberrima (African rice). In terms of production, rice
is the third highly produced crop after sugarcane and maize. Rice production in
the world will keep growing due to the expansion in population and the demand
for this staple crop. Therefore the rice seed would also rise at a similar pace.
Countries like China and India are expected to see specially an increased

China is the biggest producer of rice in the world (30% of total
production in 2010-11 fiscal year), followed by India (21%), Indonesia (8%), Bangladesh (7%), Vietnam, and Thailand.
Rising global seed market and growing use of hybrid seeds, with several
technological components and increasing trade activities have driven the rice
seed market growth globally. However, varying seed regulatory structures among
nations and high competition are placing pressure on the market growth in the
Rice is the staple food crop in Asia.
Asia accounts for about 90%of production as well as consumption of rice. It
contributes to about 60% of the calorific consumption in households here. Rice
seed is traded mainly by South America and Africa.
