Global Seed Treatment Market, By Type (Chemical and Non-Chemical/Biological), By Crop Type (Cereals

Published Date: | Report Code : FA1937046


The seed treatment market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to increased use in high-value crops.

Seed treatment is a chemical used in farming and agriculture, generally antimicrobial or fungicidal, with which, seeds are treated before planting. Sometimes, insecticides are added. Seed treatments can be a more environmentally friendly method of using pesticides as the sum of pesticides utilized is very less. Color is added to make treated seed less appealing to birds.

Seed treatment is carried out to prevent and protect seeds from plant diseases, seed rotting, and seedling blights. It also helps to improve the germination process of the seeds. Additionally, it protects plants from insects and control soil insects. Seed treatment is also used to refer to the process of removing chaff, weed seeds, and straw from seed stock.

The global seed treatment market is growing with the increasing use of seed treatment in agriculture, coupled with the rising demand for organic processing of food products. Moreover, the growing population has resulted in high food demand, which is driving the global seed treatment market. Furthermore, the growth of the conventional and bio-seeds market is resulting in the demand for seed treatment.

An increase in global farming and the decline in infertile land have generated the need for high yield productivity. These factors are fueling the growth of the global seed treatment market.
