The global forage seed market size is projected to grow significantly owing to the growing inclination toward natural and organic animal feed, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Forage Seed Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Crop Type (Alfalfa, Clover, Ryegrass, Chicory, Others), By Application (Cattle, Poultry, Swine, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030”. Forage seeds, especially legumes, offer excellent quality and quantity of animal feed, increase nitrogen content in the soil, and decrease soil loss.
In addition, in November 2023, The Organic Center, organization for scientific reporting on agriculture and food, joined hands with the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research in order to assist the research needs of farmers, scientific experts, and the industry members interested in funding the research. Organized research will result in increased knowledge about organic farming and further expansion of the organic sector in the agriculture space. This will further strengthen the demand for forage seeds.
Rising Inclination toward Natural Animal Feed to Drive Market Growth
The growing awareness about the health of livestock among consumers, coupled with increasing demand for natural and organic animal feed, has increased the utilization of forage seeds in animal feed preparation. In addition, the increasing popularity of organic meat products has driven manufacturers to include forage seeds in animal feed preparation. For example, in February 2017, JBS Australia began processing its first certified organic cattle in order to enter the organic cattle supply base in Australia. This will provide aggressive growth to the company’s production. These factors are expected to drive growth of the global forage seed market.
