Global Seed Treatment Market to See 10.6% CAGR to 2019 Says a New Research Report Available at

(PRWEB) July 25, 2014

The seed treatment market is projected to record a CAGR of 10.6% from 2014 to 2019. The estimation is a result of regular research & development in the industry, with increase in application of seed treatment in different industries. Seed treatment chemicals dominate the market in terms of value and market awareness of new target crops such as alfalfa and canola.

The seed treatments market is broadly divided on the basis of application as fungicidal seed treatments, insecticidal seed treatments and other (crop enhancement) seed treatments, for this study. With a huge market potential and growing preference for seed treatment, the market is likely to witness considerable growth in the years to come. In 2013, corn acquired the largest share as a target crop; however, the market for soybean is projected to grow at the highest rate. Complete report is available at

In agriculture and horticulture, a seed treatment or seed dressing is a chemical, typically antimicrobial or fungidal, with which seeds are treated (or “dressed”) prior to planting. Less frequently insecticides are added. Seed treatments can be an environmentally more friendly way of using pesticides as the amounts used can be very small. It is usual to add colour to make treated seed less attractive to birds if spilt and easier to see and clean up in the case of an accidental spillage.

The key companies discussed in this seed treatment market report are Bayer Cropscience Ag, E.I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company, Monsanto, BASF Se, Advanced Biological Marketing, Morflora, Novozymes A/S, Nufarm Limited, Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited and Chemtura Corporation.

Seed coating is a thicker form of covering of seed and may contain fertiliser, growth promoters and or seed treatment as well as an inert carrier and a polymer outer shell. Seed dressing is also used to refer to the process of removing chaff, weed seeds and straw from a seed stock. Care is needed not to confuse the two.

Factors such as cost, ease of application, innovative production practices, new product offerings, increased availability, and an advent of new pests are increasing the market for seed treatment industry, globally. Corn, soybean, and cereal crops are the major crops behind the current seed treatment market growth; however, there is a rising trend for the use of seed treatments on vegetables, rice, sugar beet, cotton, and oilseed crops. All the functions of seed treatment have been considered for this study and the market has been segmented and distributed based on the same. The growth rate may go higher in the next five years with regular investment in research & development, resulting in new products that have different applications.
