Introduction

Forages are the edible parts of plants eaten by livestock, and used for feeding grazing animals. Forage feed manufacturers use legumes and grass seeds to plant pastures and hayfields. The major stakeholders across the supply chain of the forage seed market are plant breeders, seed growers and conditioners, seed distributors, seed retailers and finally farmers.

Primarily plant breeders plant different forages, such as alfalfa, chicory, clover and ryegrass, to get forage seeds. These forage seeds are supplied to seed growers and conditioners for processing and conditioning them to get pure seeds with maximum germination potential.

Forage seeds are available at low price compared to other feeds such as wheat bran and oil seed, among others. In addition, the economic benefits of cultivating forage seeds, such as crop rotation and risk diversification, are further contributing to the growth of the forage seed market globally.
