Industry Segments:

The global seed treatment market is segmented on the basis of the type, application, active ingredients, method, and region.

Different types of seed treatment include seed disinfection, seed disinfestation, and seed protection. Disinfection is the eradication of fungal spores that grow within the seed coat, and the fungicidal treatment must be penetrated deep into the seed to the kill the fungus. Seed disinfestation refers to the destruction of surface-borne organisms that contaminate the seed surface but not infect it. Chemical dips, soaks, and fungicides applied as dust or slurry are some of the successful ways used for seed disinfestation. Seed protection is used for protection of seeds and the young seedling from organisms in the soil that may decay the seed even before germination. The seed protection is the leading segment due to their effective results and limited crop losses from pest attacks.

Among the applications used for seed treatment, seed dressing is the most commonly used procedure due to the low cost and ease of application. These dressings can be applied both at farm and industries. In seed dressing, pesticides can be mixed with seeds or sprinkled over them. The mixing can be done by using low-cost earthen pots, or they can be spread on a polyethylene sheet, and pesticides can be sprinkled over the seed lot. Seed coating requires advanced treatment technology and is therefore carried out at the industry where a special binder is used with a formulation to enhance adherence of the seed. Seed pelleting is the most expensive application and requires specialized machinery and techniques, which are used to change the physical shape of the seed to enhance palatability and handling.

The market is segmented by the active ingredients into insecticides, fungicides, bactericides, and others. The insecticides account for major market share due to the high performance of organophosphates in insect prone regions. Some of the commonly used insecticides are chlorpyrifos, diazinon, lindane, imidacloprid, and others. Climatic conditions that favor fungal growth is likely to drive the demand for fungicides such as captan, carboxin, fludioxonil, pentachloronitrobenzene, and others.
