Seed Sector Analysis – Bangladesh Industry, Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

Market Insights
Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC) is the largest seed producer and supplier in the country, mandated to produce large quantities of seeds. BADC is also involved in providing technical support to the private sector.
At present, only a small portion of the required quality seeds for different crops is supplied by the BADC. Rest of the seeds are produced, preserved, and used under private management, especially, at the farmers’ level. The government of Bangladesh (GOB) has already declared the National Seed Policy with the objective of promoting seed industry in the private sector. It has revised the Seed Act of 1977 and formulated seed rules in the light of the Seed Act (Amendment) 1997.
Seed Certification Agency (SCA) is the only legal authority to certify seeds. In order to increase supply of quality seeds, private sector agencies that are participating in the seed production programs will be allowed to market their "truthfully labeled seeds" side-by-side with the government agencies.
