The adoption of hybrid seeds has significantly increased in the country during and after the Green Revolution, due to the increasing pressure for high crop production for food security. The hybrid seed sector witnessed a growth of 15-20% per year, over the past decade. The major boost has come from the increased adoption of Bt cotton hybrids, single-cross corn hybrids, and hybrid vegetables. This increased demand for hybrid seeds has boosted the market for commercial seeds. The aggressive promotion measures are undertaken for the use of hybrid seeds resulted in the increased demand for, and production of, hybrid seeds in the country. Farmers are adopting and using more hybrid seeds, considering the disease- and pest-resistant properties of these seeds, and reducing the losses and cost of production. The scenario post-adoption of hybrid seeds has resulted in many advantages, such as yield improvement, ensuring higher prices, and the availability of seeds at an affordable price, thus promoting the growth of the Indian seed market. Therefore, the benefits of the adoption of hybrid seeds have led farmers to use them in low productivity regions. This has further boosted the demand for seeds in India.
