The product was launched to protect the wheat crop in India during the rabi planting season.
Trends such as seed coating are expected to drive the growth of the global seed treatment market during the forecast period. Seed coating is a process under which different chemicals such as fungicides, insecticides and other protecting agents are used to externally coat the seed to prevent any fungal, bacterial or pathogen attack. Examples of seed coating are film coating and artificial polymer coating.
Is projected to be the largest market accounting to 33% share growing at a CAGR of 10.9% in the global seed treatment market by 2025. Seed treatment in corn is used to control seasonal pests and diseases. The use of seed treatments in corn is projected to maximize the plant’s stand, yield and vigor. Hence many farmers worldwide are projected to use seed treatments driving the growth of the global seed treatment market. For instance, Poncho 1250 + VOTiVO FST/IST/NST includes a 1250* rate of Poncho insecticide (clothianidin) a product of the company Du Point which provides suppression of black cutworm and also protect the crops from rootworm attach at low-pressure levels in the global seed treatment market.
Canola is projected to grow with the fastest CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period in the global seed treatment market as new formulations are now being launched. For instance, Bayer CropScience a player in global seed treatment market is now offering Jockey Stayer a quinazoline-triazole fungicide for canola seed treatment. The active ingredients are 167 g/L fluquinconazole that protect the canola crop.
Insecticides are projected to dominate the market share at 53% during the forecast period in the global seed treatment market. The segment is projected to grow steadily as many players in the global seed treatment are investing broadly in R&D to bring in the new formulation to treat some of the largest crop production such as corn, soy and wheat.
