GM Seeds Market Expected to Rise Swiftly in Asia PacificMarch 27, 2019
According to the report, which quotes GM crop adoption data from ISAAA, North America dominated the genetically modified seeds market in 2016, owing to high adoption of genetically modified or biotech crops in the region. It was highlighted that the support of the government of Canada in the promotion of GM seeds is one of the major factors fueling the growth of the market in the country. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is projected to exhibit the fastest growth over the forecast period. Strong growth has been noted in emerging countries in the region, particularly in India and China.
