Advancement in seed technology. 

The advancements in seed technology enhance the profitability of seed industry. The advancement includes exploration of agricultural sources and the development of genetically modified seeds, hybridization rates, and many others.  The factors influencing in development of hybrid and genetically modified seeds are increase in vegetable demand due to rise in urbanization and population. Genetically modified seeds improve crop yield and provides huge variations in crop. Adoption of gene modification process in genetically modified seeds for better crop yield is driving the genetically seed market. In 2017, Monsanto invented and marketed genetically modified seeds that make a crystalline insecticidal protein from Bacillus thuringiensis, which is also known as Bt. Emerging trends, such as the increasing adoption of drought-tolerant biotech crops and the growing demand for high-yield crops, positively impact the dynamics of the genetically modified seed industry. This, in turn, is driving the fruit and vegetable seeds market.
