what is rice seed?

A rice seed refers to the whole cereal grain with the outer hull and a single rice kernel. It is generally available in different variants, such as arborio, basmati, brown, white, jasmine, etc. Among them, the open-pollinated variety (OPV) refers to the seeds produced via the natural pollination of the parent rice plant. In contrast to this, hybrid seeds include purebred sterile seeds of rice fertilized with pollen from a different rice variety. Rice seeds are also available in transgenic and non-transgenic variants, which are genetically modified to improve the functional properties of the crop.

What are the growth prospects and trends in the rice seed industry?

The elevating consumption of rice as a staple food crop across the globe is among the key factors catalyzing the rice seed market. Moreover, the rising adoption of organic rice-based farming practices is augmenting the need for OPV seeds to meet the escalating food requirements of consumers, thereby propelling the product demand. Besides this, the increasing adoption of hybrid rice seeds is acting as another growth-inducing factor.

Furthermore, various technological advancements, such as the utilization of genomics and microbiology to produce seeds that have inherited resistance to bacterial blight pathogens, are fueling the market growth. Apart from this, the growing utilization of silico mapping and arraying technologies for producing desired seed characteristics is anticipated to drive the rice seed market over the forecasted period.
