The Mexico forage seed market has estimated to be XX billion US$ in 2014 and expected to reach XX billion US$ by 2020 at a CAGR of XX% during the forecasted period 2015-2020. Forage seeds are used by the farmers to grow forage crops such as Alfalfa, Clover, ryegrass which are utilized by the grazing livestock. Mexico produces around XX tons of certified seeds but it is not sufficient for the domestic market. Hence the Mexico market is dependent on the export of forage seeds from US, Canada, Brazil. About 22.9 millions of lbs. of grass and legumes seed were imported from US in 2014.The total import of grass and legume seeds in the year 2014 was US$28.74 million. Beef being the main agriculture produce of Mexico supports the demand for the forage seed in the market.

Sorghum and millets are the forage seed crops that are largely produced in Mexico as the region is. Limited to climatic condition and drought arid region of Mexico the production is dominated by the import market of grass and legume seeds. Famers having a dairy farm, grazing farm and millers uses the forage seeds for the better productivity of their crops. About 30 kg of forage feed are required to produce 1 kg of beef products which creates an insatiable demand for the forage seed by the livestock farmers.

The major drivers for the market are increased demand for dairy and animal products, increased consumer preference for organic food and feed products, large cattle population, growth in population and growing per capita income of population. However the high investment for the forage seed production has affecting the market growth. Unpredictability of seed cycle, arid Soil region, Climatic change, and the time incentive returns being the restraint for the market. Although the quality potential of the forage seed is quite high and so the cost is more which creates an unwillingness for the farmers to buy the high cost seed for the feed.

Forage market are distributed in different segment on the crop type, product type and animal type. The market segmented on the type of crop production for the miller such as cereal crops, legumes or grasses for grazing animals. Alfalfa and forage grasses consists of major share in the market followed by legumes seeds. Forage product type is further sub segmented into the storage purpose forage and fresh forage. Forage are grown for conservation to preserve them for the time when it is unavailable in the market. It is stored as hay through drying process and as silage through fermentation process. The market segmentation through cattle type includes cross breed cattle, indigenous cattle and buffalos. The poultry livestock utilizes high quality forage seeds and covers the major market share followed by cattle and pork.

Large cattle population in the region and more than half of the land available for livestock production has created a great opportunity for the current forage feed market. The high investment in the production of forage seed and its high cost is still a big challenge for the market growth. The key players in the market are Alied Seed, DLF International seeds, Dynamic Seeds Ltd., Brett Young, Golden Acre Seeds, Moore Seed Processors, Pickseed Canada Ltd., Foster feed and seed, among others.
