Key Market Trends

Yield Lag in Self-pollinated Crop (Rice and Wheat) to Meet the Demand

Rice and wheat are some of the major crops cultivated in Bangladesh, and with the increase in population every year, it is mandatory for them to cope with the growth to meet the demand and supply. It has been evident that the yield progress of Wheat and Rice was comparatively lower than expected when compared to that of the Maize crop during 2016 and hence Private players were pushed to invest in high yielding Rice and wheat seeds to address the food security concerns by Bangladesh government.

Demand for Hybrid Seeds

Maize, unlike rice and wheat, is a non-noticeable crop and hence easier for the private players to enter into the Maize market. Based on the forecast it is seen that 90% of the hybrid maize seed are being imported from India into Bangladesh. Hence the private players can utilize the third party R&D facility as per the government policy to figure out the production of In-house hybrid maize seeds. Also, the private players entering the market owing to their own R&D facility is also another added advantage to pierce into the Hybrid seed market.
