Increasing Trade in Wheat Seed Driving the Market

Since the medieval times, the seed demand for the self-pollinated wheat crop was fulfilled by traditional methods, wherein farmers saved one-quarter of their wheat harvest as seed for the next crop. The global average seed use comprises of around 6-8% of the total output. The highest increase in demand of wheat seed has been seen in Asia, the increase is majorly due to the increase in population. Global trade for wheat seed has been rising as the higher exports from Russia, Argentina, and Canada easily offset the reduced exports from the US. Projected imports have increased for Indonesia and several African countries, while they have reduced for India, Iran, Brazil, and Mexico. Indonesia’s imports have also increased, from 1.0 million metric ton to 12.5 million metric ton, as a result of a surge in both food and feed use. Indonesia is now the leading global wheat importer surpassing Egypt, the traditional leader.
