Market Dynamics:

Seed treatment has become popular due to various benefits. Seed treatment products help maximize seedling establishment and early plant growth, resulting in increased forage yields. These products compare favorably with 'broadacre' pesticide applications in terms of cost per hectare.

Seed treatment products are effective against a range of common insect pests and diseases. Also, Seed treatment products are not harmful to beneficial organisms such as earthworms. Seed treatments contain very small quantities of active- ingredients, so the environmental impact of seed treatment is much lower than chemical pesticides. Use of GMO, as well as Non-GMO proprietary seeds, requires the use of seed treatment since they are costly. The use of proprietary seeds is increasing all over the world. This is driving the seed treatment market.

High-tech seed treatment processes are generally very expensive. Small scale farmers, farmers in developing world can’t afford the cost which is limiting the growth of the market.

The greater availability of seed treatment options that could be certified for use on organic seed could potentially boost the market. In March 2018, Indigo Ag, Inc. has received organic certification for the company’s microbial seed treatment in corn.
