Factors such as increasing application of cereals & grains in the feed, food, and biofuels industry alongside growing technological advancements such as the adoption of hybridization and are propelling the growth of the hybrid seeds industry.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global seeds industry. The outbreak of COVID-19 has widespread implications on all the commodity markets, including seeds.

Canada and Mexico are dependent upon the US seed market for their seed requirement. The US seed industry is not seeing any seed shortages at the national or regional level. The home garden seed sector is seeing a huge spike in demand for product, and companies are working hard to keep up with that unprecedented demand.

The American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) is closely monitoring the global pandemic and its impact on the seed industry both domestically and globally. Disruptions in deliveries of seeds could reduce harvests and incomes for U.S. farmers who were hoping this year to sell more crops to China under the terms of a trade agreement signed in January.
