The USDA Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) recently released two market reports on China. The reports are helpful tools for companies interested in learning more about opportunities in the Chinese seed market.

The China Planting Seeds Market report provides in-depth analysis of the composition of the market, and the policies that shape it, as well as an overview of current trade data. It also includes unofficial translations of China’s seed law, regulations for seed labels, and proposed revisions to existing PVP regulations. The Agriculture Biotechnology Annualreport  provides an overview of the current market environment for biotechnology crops in China, and highlights the regulations promoting the development of the domestic seed industry.

A third report by the Asia and Pacific Seed Association discusses the implementation of a new regulation in China requiring QR codes on seed labels.
