Hybrid seed are developed artificially by crossing two or more plants of different species. Crossing two different varieties result in development of seed that carries one or more desired traits. Hybrid seeds are majorly used in commercial farming to increase crop yields and to develop disease and climate resistant plants. These seeds are developed by natural methods of cross breeding and they are not genetically modified. Hybrid seeds are majorly used in gardening and farming of flowers and vegetables such as roses, tomatoes, and sweet corn. The advantages of hybrid seeds over conventional seeds are increased yield, early maturity, high heat and cold tolerance, disease and pest resistance, better uniformity, and better fruit quality. High demand for fruits and vegetables from emerging economies is driving growth of the hybrid seeds market.
