  Seeds are at the top of the agricultural production chain. They are the most basic and important means of production in agricultural production and the basis for human survival and development. According to data from the Ministry of Land and Resources, China’s cultivated land per capita is less than 1.4 acres, which is 40% of the world average. Increasing food production and income has become the fundamental way to ensure the security of national food supply. Grain production is inseparable from seeds. The seed industry is at the starting point of the entire agricultural industry chain and affects or even determines crop yield and quality to a large extent. As a major agricultural country, China's seed industry has huge and stable market demand.

 From a global perspective, the global seed industry has formed a relatively mature industrial chain with three major links: "breeding-seed production-sales", among which the breeding link is the core part of the seed industry. Crop germplasm resources are the genetic source of improved varieties and the material basis for cultivating high-quality, high-yielding crops. In recent years, advances in biotechnology and computer technology have led to the rapid development of breeding technology. Developed agricultural countries have entered the Breeding 4.0 era characterized by "biotechnology + artificial intelligence + big data". Transgenic technology, gene editing technology, whole-genome selective breeding, and genomics have become the core and frontier of current international biotechnology breeding research. As a basic condition for agricultural development, an active and innovative seed industry pattern is of great significance.

 The globalization of the seed industry is constantly tapping the huge potential of China's seed market. As the seed market gradually opens up, multinational seed companies will inevitably bring greater pressure to the domestic seed industry and promote its adaptation to the industrial development environment. Develop the national seed industry with Chinese characteristics.
