The Important Elements of the United Kingdom Seed Treatment Market

It aids to control soil-and seed borne infections and diseases. Seed treatment enhances the yield of crops, minimizes germination time, and improves overall productivity. Presently, neonicotinoids are the most popular seed treatment insecticides in the market. Seed treatment is considered a cost-effective crop protection solution when compared to conventional spraying as it is more efficient and minimal labor intensive. In the process of seed treatment, only planting seeds are coated with a treating agent due to the low amount of active ingredients needed for protection against numerous fungal diseases and insect pests. Eco-friendly pesticides and fungicides that prevent pathogens and rodents from damaging the crop are commonly utilized in the seed treatment process.

These pesticides and fungicides are widely utilized in different concentrations as per the requirements of the crop or the soil. The treatment process involves numerous stages including exposing the seeds to the sun, immersing them in nutrient-rich water, phytosanitary treatment, coating, priming, pelleting, and microbial inoculation. Rising prices of genetically modified (GM) seeds have fostered the need for crop protection to minimize the risk on investment. The developments as well as continuous research & activities in the agriculture industry along with the expansion of the food industry flourish the growth of the seed treatment market. Along with this, the rising concern towards food safety and increasing environmental concerns are expected to offer enormous opportunities for the market of seed treatment across the United Kingdom in the forecast period.

However, risk factors associated with the usage of chemicals in the process of treatment of seed are expected to impede the growth of the seed treatment market in the forthcoming years.
