  • Scope
  • Global Seed Treatment: Market Analysis and Opportunities is a detailed analysis of and outlook for one of the most dynamic sectors in all of crop protection.

    A number of converging trends make this the right time for this overview:

    • As commodity prices remain high for growers around the world, it makes even more sense for growers to invest in protecting their crops.
    • As biotechnology advancements have increased the value of some field crop seed by introducing new traits, growers have demanded better protection of that seed to maximize their return on investment.
    • At the same time, new active ingredients have been introduced that present new opportunities for seed protection.

    This report focuses on the application of fungicides, insecticdes, and nematicides including all biopesticides that may be applied as a way of protecting the seed and seedlings. Enhancement products such as polymers and colorants will also be covered. It will review the most common seedling diseases, insects, and nematodes for the crops being studied. The report also addresses cultural practices and non-chemical control methods, and then focus on the technologies and products used to treat seed prior to planting. Most of the report focuses on off-farm treatment, but in cases where on-farm treatment is important, these treatments are covered as well. Crops covered in this report are:
