Steep Growth for Seed Coatings?

Seed coating is the process in which seeds are coated with a chemical that protects the seed from insecticides, fungicides, and other factors. The seed coating process provides sufficient defense from viruses, insects, and other pests contributing to the production of high and healthy seeds. It also helps in improving handling, the delivery of protectants, and growth regulation. Furthermore, it improves symbiotic microorganisms, soil adjuvants, and colors. Nowadays, the burden on Research and Development (R&D) regarding global food supply is increasing at its wildest level.

The government is taking serval initiatives and investing heavily along with major key players to grasp the opportunity. Thus, with increasing initiatives and investments in agriculture; the awareness among the farmers about the use of genetically modified seeds and hybrid seeds is increasing. Consequently, this is surging the adoption rate of using modern technology in agriculture. Thus, it is further anticipated to propel the seed coating market growth in the near future over the forecast period. However, the stringent regulations of the government concerning the seed coating act may play a role of the restraining factor for the seed coating market growth.
