Genetic Engineering Helps Increase Availability of Improved Organic Seeds

Mordor Intelligence reports that the global market for organic seeds was
valued at USD 1,651.5 million in 2018 and is projected to reach a compound
annual growth rate of 12.7% from 2019-2014. Polaris Market Research predicts
that the global organic seed market will reach USD 5.35 billion by 2026. The
increased availability of improved hybrid organic seeds could be attributed
to molecular techniques such as cisgenesis and transgenesis used by several
industrialized countries. The increasing demand for naturally derived
products is the main reason that is expected to drive the organic seed
industry over the next couple of years.

Certification as organic producer is granted to
[] farmers
who use formerly grown seeds except for non-originally or non-formerly
farmed untreated seeds. The planting stocks can also be used for the
production of an organic crop only when an equivalent organically bred
variety is not available commercially. In some industrialized countries,
organic plant breeding in several industrialized nations has been
increasingly employing cisgenesis and transgenesis. Although
[] genetic
engineering is used to develop seeds and organic farming is used to grow
crops, some countries such as the

GM seeds to make organic products.
