Forage seeds are used by the farmers to grow forage crops such as Alfalfa, Clover, Birdsfoot Trefoll, Bentgrass which are utilized by the grazing livestock as a feed. Forage plants are first breed by the forage breeder to obtain forage seeds which is then supplied to the seed grower and conditioner for further processing and conditioning to get the purified seed with high potential. The total export of animal products in Australia valued for US$2500 million in the previous year which shows a huge demand for animal feed and the need for forage seed in the market. Cross breeding of animal for high productivity and demand for high quality forage seed has strengthen the current market.

Forage seeds are used by the millers, dairy farmers and forage farmers for the high yield of crops. These seeds are produced as per the species and variety of crops to be grown. Generally these seeds are utilized for the beef feed production that are in high demand and to later extent for dairy animals. Australian forage seed production market mainly consists of Alfalfa and clover seeds.

Growth in consumption and export of animal products has increased the demand for the livestock feed which is boosting the forage seed market. The major drivers for the market are increased demand for dairy and animal products, increased consumer preference for organic food and feed products, increased in breed cattle demand for feed, growth in population and the shrinkage of land for the grazing animals. GMO crops are not allowed in southern Australia which is creating a big hurdle for the market. Unpredictability of seed cycle, Soil condition, Climatic change, periodic drought characteristic of the region 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. 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 beef covers the major market share among other livestock.

Increased export of animal product are steadily creating good opportunities for the forage seed market in Australia. The geographical condition and the tropical climate has limited the production of forage seed which is a major challenge for the market growth.
