Global Wheat Seed Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2017-2022 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Wheat Seed Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Wheat is one of the most important staple crops that is readily cultivated worldwide. The crop is a high-volume, low-profit seed crop and is produced primarily by heavily subsidized government seed programmes. Wheat seed production differs from wheat grain production in aspects such as land requirement, isolation, roguing, prevention of contamination and limitations of generations.

Wheat is a major diet component across regions due to the plant's agronomic adaptability for production in any soil and climate type. It is the most commonly grown crop in the world, occupying approximately 25% of the worlds arable land and providing 20% of the daily protein to the global population. China, India, the United States, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Pakistan and Australia are the major wheat producing countries. The crop offers ease of grain storage and ease of converting grain into flour for edible purposes. It is the primary food staple in North America and Middle East and is growing in popularity in Asia. The common forms of wheat are red and white wheat. Black, yellow and blue wheat are commercially minor but nutritionally promising species. Better seed storage and germination ability are the major technological innovations that amplify the wheat seed demand in the global platform.

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 falls around 6-8% of the total output. Creating hybrid varieties for wheat has been difficult and labor intensive due to its self-pollinating characteristic. Commercial hybrid wheat seeds have been produced using chemical hybridizing agents, plant growth regulators or naturally occurring cytoplasmic male sterility systems. The success of hybrid seeds has been limited to Europe (particularly France), the United States and South Africa.
