According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Seed Industry in India: Market Trends, Structure, Growth, Key Players and Forecast 2022-2027,” the seed industry in India reached a value of US$ 5.5 Billion in 2021. Seeds are characteristic reproductive part of different types of plants, including gymnosperms and angiosperms. They are small embryonic plants that are enclosed in a seed coat with stored food. Seeds are formed from the fertilization of an ovule after pollination. They can be differentiated into two forms, namely, dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous. Seeds are used for growing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and for obtaining oils for margarine production, lubrication, cooking, and painting. There are several quality characteristics that are used for determining the quality of a seed, which include improved variety, genetic purity, physical purity, seed germination and vigor, seed health and moisture, freedom from weeds and other crop seeds. Some of the other quality characteristics include seed color, size, weight and specific gravity.
