The Indian vegetable seed market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 9.8 percent till 2025. However, currently, only less than 15 percent of seeds used by Indian farmers are good quality seeds, and the rest of the seed demand is met by seeds that were saved by farmers from the previous seasons. According to ICR A, the increasing awareness about the consumption of vegetables to meet the dietary and nutritional requirements has led to a surge in demand for vegetables, which in turn has led to the increase in the production of vegetables. Therefore, farmers are growing a large variety of vegetables to not only meet this demand but understand the fact that vegetables are short-duration crops, having multiple harvests and resulting in better cash f low for them. Hence, farmers today are more focused on obtaining quality agricultural products that not only increase agricultural yield but also offer value for money.
