In agriculture, the demand for nutritional needs has increased in farm animals and can be catered through natural forage. The nutritional quality of feed is influenced not only by the nutrient content, but also by other factors such as feed presentation, hygiene, digestibility, and effects on intestinal health. Thus, nutrient deficiencies in livestock can be resolved by providing them forage feed that maintain the rate of growth of livestock, their health, and wellbeing. People are becoming more conscious about their health and thus, the preference is given to organic food, as it does not contain pesticides. Moreover, organic meat and milk are richer in nutrients and minerals such as enzymes, antioxidants, and bioflavonoid. Hence, people prefer organic food and organic meat over inorganic. This has led to increase in the organic feed demand to supply organic meat to consumers. Dairy farms, poultry sector, and animal husbandry have focused on purchasing high quality forage feed due to the growing demand for organic meat.

With the use of forage seeds, soil health can be improved and maintained as the producers not rely on synthetic fertilizer and pesticide inputs for forage seed farming. In forage seed production, cover crop forage mix is used that manage the health of soil. Cover crops primarily provide protection to soil, improve soil structure, increase organic matter, and capture and hold nutrients for forage crops. The demand for forage crop has increased due to need for improving soil health.

However, Natural calamities, such as droughts, floods, and frost create challenges in the production of forage feed. Forage seed requires more lead time (approximately 2-3 years to reap forage) to establish seed crop and harvesting. Thus, there is no instant return of investment. Natural disasters, climatic factors, and economic conditions can influence seed prices.
