Biological Seed Treatment Market Overview :
Advanced farming technologies have led to the use of biologicals for treating seeds and crop grains in a variety of methods. Biological treatment of seeds such as coating seeds by foliar sprays is intended the protection of seed from many external factors like pest infestation, plant diseases, and harsh weather, among others. Growing global population will continue to raise food consumption levels, which fascinates farmers to accept biological seed treatment options. Protection from various external factors, and enhancement of crop efficiency offered by this treatment will boost the acceptance among farmers across the globe in coming years. The market is influenced by the acceptance of sustainable agricultural practices, along with heavy investments being made by key market players in the R & D of these products.
Insurance to seed investments, increasing demand for sustainable agriculture in the global market, and reduced risk of exceeding pesticide MRLs are the factors driving the growth of the biological seed treatment market. However, huge cost, and low accessibility and low acceptance of biological seed treatments may hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, arrival of advanced combination products, and emerging markets might provide with several growth opportunities in the forecasted year.
