Use of Seed Treatment Materials Ensuring Consistent Income for Farmers

Owing to the changing lifestyles of consumers and emerging food trends, farmers are more inclined to grow high value crops, fruits, and vegetables. This has reduced crop rotation practices that were traditionally used for replenishing nutrients in the soil.

Seed coating materials contain ingredients such as zeolites, rhizobium, polyvinyl alcohol, and others that provide micronutrients and binding properties to seeds through coatings. These micronutrients help seeds to derive essential nutrients from the soil thus improving their overall yield.

The soil can, therefore, abide time to replenish itself with starter fertilizers coated on seeds and additional manure. Besides offering multiple benefits, seed treatment materials help seeds to germinate without completely relying on nutrients present in the soil. This is one of the chief factors duelling the demand for seed treatment materials in the farming community.

“The demand for seed treatment materials is expected to rise amidst the climate change as the treated seeds offer several advantages. Improvement in seed treatment materials can help farmers eliminate the use of pesticides. Using seed polymers and biologicals ensure environmental safety, while fostering cultivation in natural methods. Awareness regarding these benefits will create lucrative prospects for the market,” said a lead analyst at FMI.

Who is Winning?

Some of the key players operating in the seed treatment materials market are Bayer AG, Sumitomo Chemical, Evonik, Corteva Agriscience, Syngenta AG, BASF SE, Eastman Chemical Company, and Clariant Specialty Chemicals.

Due to the increasing competition, manufacturers are focusing on innovative seed formulations and setting up of sales and distribution channels. Besides this, some of the leading companies are focusing on entering into collaborations with regional/local manufacturers in the growing markets.
