Key Market Trends

Government Scheme for the Supply of Quality Seeds.

The European seed sector has developed a scheme to ensure the safe treatment of seeds against pests and diseases with less quantity of chemicals applied to it. European Seed Treatment Assurance Scheme (ESTA) provides the entire support from seed cleaning to the use of treated seeds in the field. ESTA certifies and makes sure that only the seeds meeting the agreed quality standards are being put in the market. With such a lower amount of chemical and active ingredient on it, it is more economic and environment-friendly in terms of public health and efficacy.

Cereals, Maize, Oilseeds Rape, Vegetable seeds, Sugarbeet, Protein plant, Sunflower seeds are some of the certified seed coated in the region like Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Russia.

Major Crops Certified Under The ESTA Scheme In The European Region during the Forecast 2016-2025

Government Funding to meet the Seed Demand

The European seed sector is into a number of EU-funded research projects which address the Present and future challenges regarding plant breeding, food and nutrition security, and sustainable agricultural practices. In 2019, the European seed sector along with The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) has undertaken a project on "Genome editing in plants" to meet the major concern of providing adequate nutrition to the growing population.

In 2018, the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program has funded the 4-year BRESOV (Breeding for Resilient, Efficient and Sustainable Organic Vegetable production) project which focuses on developing the productivity of different vegetable crops in an organic and sustainable farming infrastructure. It also funded the CropBooster-P project which focused on adapting the technologies to boost crop yield by introducing new crops for sustainable agricultural practices.
