Biological Seed Treatment Market – An Alternative To Chemical Pesticides (Insecticides) Provides Healthy Start For Seed: Market Is Expected To Growth During Forecast By 2023

The biological seed treatment process is carried out to protect seeds from pathogens. Microorganisms are used as biological control agents in the seed treatment process. Biological seed treatment is used as an alternative to chemical pesticides. Furthermore, preference for the organic production process is currently higher vis-a-vis the synthetic production process. Biological seed treatment is an effective way in direction of seed protection to provide healthy start. Biological seed treatment provides inbuilt resistance while enhancing production yields. Biological seed treatment controls and suppresses insects, pathogens, and other pests that pose a threat to seeds. Seed treatment process provides the seed to grow without any use agrochemicals which results in less degradation of soil. The biological seed treatment market includes different types of crops such as cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, oilseed & pulses, forage, and ornamental & plantation crops. 

The biological seed treatment process reduces the use of agrochemicals spray used for production of food. Reduction of agrochemicals through spray lowers the exposure of farmers to chemicals. It also reduces the environmental impact. Potential exposure of soil surface to harmful agrochemicals further affects the efficiency of soil. Various procedures such as mycoparasitism, antagonism, and antibiosis are employed in the biological seed treatment process. The choice of procedure depends on requirements, as each method offers advantages and disadvantages that affect the overall performance of seeds. One of the key issues in adopting a single procedure of seed treatment process is that the resistance of seed is restricted to few spectrum of pathogens.

Demand for biological seed treatment is largely led by consumers’ preference for organic products over traditionally produced products. Additionally, the environmentally friendly farming process is widely accepted currently. Increases in food requirement are likely to boost the demand for biological seed treatment procedures. However, factors such as lack of knowledge among farmers about the benefits of using biologically treated seeds and unwillingness to change the practice of adopting traditional methods are restraining market growth.  

In regions such as North America and Europe, implementation of the environmental protection law and governmental promotion of microbial products are likely to increase the usage of biologically treated seeds during the forecast period. Rising demand for organic and healthy food is projected to boost the usage of biological seed treatment methods. Biological seed treatment uses an innovative technology to enhance the yield of crops and fight against pathogens. These properties are estimated to increase the usage of biologically treated seeds.

The market for biological seed treatment is expected to expand in North America and Europe due to the presence of superior technologies and efforts by organizations to invest significantly in research and development activities. In terms of usage of the biological seed treatment process, North America is anticipated to be the largest market, followed by Europe, due to wide acceptance of organic foods and environmentally-friendly farming practices. The biological seed treatment market is projected to expand in Asia Pacific due to higher economic growth in the region. Thus, the global biological seed treatment market is also likely to experience strong growth in the near future.
