When we talk seeds, there are two broad categories: edible seeds and agri seeds. Edible seeds, as we all know and often consume, are gaining in popularity as food items. Around the world, people are waking up to the health benefits of seeds such as sesame, pumpkin, cucumber, sunflower, flax, chia, etc. These seeds are rich in fibre and phyto-nutrients and are being widely consumed in salads, soups, snacks. etc.

Agri seeds is another category catering to farmers mainly in grains, cereals, fruits, vegetables, and oil and forage crops. In India, where agriculture is the dominant occupation, there is a growing seed market and abundant opportunities for marketers. Currently, grain seeds represent the largest seed type, accounting for more than a half of the total seed production.
