South Korea Seed Market Research Report

South Korea seed market is expected to show substantial growth over the next five years on account of the Golden Seed Project initiated by the government. The project aims to bring South Korea onto the map of global leaders in the seed industry. Under the project the government plant to invest over USD 722 million. Due to rapid industrial development in the country there hasn’t been enough focus of the government on the agricultural sector in the past. However, the government in recent years has adopted policies focusing on development and liberalization of the agricultural sector. The decreasing trend of total production and the total cultivated area of all the major crops in the country is expected to gradually stabilize in the next few years. Owing to these factors the overall seed market in South Korea is expected to augment in the long run.

Farmers in the country are aware with the benefits of practicing sustainable agriculture practices and organic farming. The government has encouraged such practices by providing farmers with direct payment benefit for the additional costs or farm income loss as a result of practicing sustainable agriculture. Development of various hybrid varieties of flowers has resulted in the growth of indigenous flower breeders. The demand for these breeds is increasing in other countries. Although, the cultivated area of rice has decreased in the past few years, the yield per hectare has increased. South Korea in future will require rice seeds with higher yield per hectare of land. The demand for better varieties for different vegetables seeds is also likely to increase on the same grounds.   The government’s focus on overall development and R&D is gradually providing indigenous companies the resources and platform to grow and compete with the global players in international market. The growth of the indigenous players will bring the country’s seed industry at power with the market of other neighboring countries like China and Japan. All these factors combined are expected to positively affect the growth of the seed market in the country.
