FSII has primarily been formed with the objective of providing a forumforresearch based seed industry and seed technology companies who develop and provide high performance seeds and technology based solutionsthat will benefit Indian farmers and the nation at large. It will also strive to actively contribute in its own way to the Hon. Prime Minister’s vision of doubling the farmers’ income by 2022 through seed science. In addition, the key purpose and commitments of the FSII include providing a platform that will bring together like­minded seed companies who are committed to the seed business, IP creation, IP protection and working for the welfare of Indian farmers. FSII will work to address all issues, constraints and difficulties that affect the growth of seed and seed industry in India. The new federation would also build capacities & knowledge and engage in activities that alleviate distress in the farming community. FSII also plans to work closely and collaboratively with Policy makers and all stakeholders to help in creating an enabling environment for the growth of research based seed industry.

Mr Ramasami , Chairman and Managing Director of Rasi Seeds, a founding member of FSII said ​“Indian agriculture continues to face several challenges such as increasing population, declining arable land, reducing fresh water availability, climate change and stagnant/reducing productivity­ all of which impactfarmers’ income and sustainable agriculture. Another challenge for policy makers in India has been the increasing import dependence of edible oil and pulses. It is important to ensure both food and nutritionalsecurity forthe country’s growing population. Seed is one of the key inputsthat can deliverinnovative solutionsto addressthe agricultural challenges we have. This new Association is committed to increase efforts in research and innovation in Seed – which in turn,  would help our farmers and Indian Agriculture ”

The Founding Members of this Association have been pioneers in introducing many new research and high quality products in India. For instance, members of FSII include companies who commercialised India's first hybrids in Rice, Wheat, Jowar, Bajra, Maize, Sunflower, & several vegetables. Research products from these founding member companies include Tomato Leaf curl virus tolerant tomato, Leaf curl virus tolerant Cotton, Yellow vein mosaic virus tolerant Bhendi, Single Cross Maize, etc.

Mr Ramasami further added that​“ Our new association is driven by the fundamental value ofrespecting research and intellectual properties of each other. The Association believesthat no single company has allthe solutions and hence collaborations, joint ventures, licensing arrangements and similar approaches are necessary among the members of the industry. Such collaborative working is possible only based on fair dealings, mutualtrust, respect for the law and honoring of contractual obligations. FSII is committed to foster such values amongst its members.” FSII looks forward to working closely and collaboratively with all the stakeholders for the long term benefit of Indian Agriculture.
