The global organic fruits, vegetables and nuts seed market is set to exceed USD 5.35 billion by the end of 2026. The market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.01 percent during the forecast period. Growing demand for naturally derived products is the primary reason expected to drive the organic seed industry over the next seven to eight years, a market research study, ‘Organic Seed Market’, conducted by Polaris Market Research & Consulting has reported.

Some of the leading market players in the organic seed industry in terms of seed farming and supply include Renee’s Garden, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Kusa Seed Society, Territorial Seeds Company, Arnica Kwekerij, Mass Plant, Wild Garden Seed, High Mowing Organic Seeds, Fleuren, Vitalis Organic Seeds, HILD Samen, De Bolster, Navdanya, Farm Direct Organic Seeds, Rijk Zwaan, Wild Garden Seeds, Fedco Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange and Johnny’s Selected Seeds.

For any seed to be certified as organic, the producer or farmer should only use formerly grown seeds except for non-originally or non-formerly farmed untreated seeds. The planting stocks can also be used for the production of an organic crop only when an equivalent organically breeded variety is not available commercially. Organic plant breeding in several industrialised nations has increasingly employing molecular techniques.

Europe was the largest market in 2017 and with increasing organic farming land in the region, the demand of organic food is further expected to increase in the near future. Organic farming or agriculture has been a boom in the region and almost every country, the market is rapidly developing.
