The market for Solanaceae segment is projected to account for the largest share during the forecast period
The Solanaceae family includes potatoes, eggplant, tomato, capsicum, and chili. According to the FAO, tomatoes and potatoes account for the largest produced vegetables across the globe. Countries such as China, India, and South Korea are among the major producers of potatoes
The family of Solanaceae has an approximate of 75 genera and 2,000 species of herbs, shrubs, and small trees. Solanaceae can be produced by both seed and stem cutting. The cutting method is used to produce shrub-like plants. Tomato, botanically a fruit, is a perennial plant grown in the tropical climatic conditions. Tomatoes are prone to developing fungi, which could hamper the growth of the plant. The application of fungicide seed protectant and rotation of crops could help reduce the impact of these diseases on tomatoes.
New species of pests and diseases are now impacting the production of these products, which are staple crops across the globe. For instance, the Colorado potato beetle threatened the production of tomatoes and eggplants. The adoption of integrated pest management such as farm hygiene practices, biological controls, and selection of appropriate quantities of chemicals could help in coping with pest infestation.
