A seed is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a covering called the seed coat, usually with some stored food. It is the product of the ripened ovule of gymnosperm and angiosperm plants which occurs after fertilization and some growth within the mother plant.

In an industrial context, "seed" refers to a small reproductive structure used as the starting point for growing crops, plants, and trees. These seeds are produced by plants and are used to propagate new generations of the same or similar species. Some examples of seeds used in agriculture and horticulture industries include:

  1. Corn seed
  2. Soybean seed
  3. Wheat seed
  4. Rice seed
  5. Vegetable seed (e.g. tomato, cucumber, lettuce)
  6. Fruit seed (e.g. apple, orange, strawberry)
  7. Tree seed (e.g. oak, maple, pine)
