Seed Treatment Market Applications:

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.

Market Information:

The high demand for seed treatment can be attributed to its low cost and enhanced crop yield. The increasing population across the globe has generated immense demand for food, which is the major factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the demand for high-quality food grains and vegetables across the globe is expected to fuel the demand for seed treatment. This increase in the demand is augmented due to the shifting trends towards the organic consumables as a result of increasing health awareness amongst the consumer. Additionally, unfavorable soil conditions, which lead to the growth of undesirable fungi spores and result in damaged seeds is another reason that drives the seed treatment demand. The adoption of seed treatment is also increasing due to the need for conservation of traditional and indigenous breeds in various regions. The high cost of genetically modified seed is likely to augment the market growth over the forecast period.
