REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Low-cost crop protection and rising prices of genetically modified (GM) crops, as well as a rising world population and increasing food requirements are driving the demand for seed treatment. The seed treatment market encompasses a variety of products being used by seed companies and growers for coating seed in order to safeguard seed and improve crops by controlling the population of seed-borne and soilborne pathogens.

Seed treatment offers several advantages:
• Seed safety: Seed companies can easily treat in a single day seed valued in excess of $1 million.
• Efficiency: Soilborne seedling disease control and soilborne insect control.
• Application technology: equipment, formulations, coating and seed treatment application centers.

This report is designed to cover aspects of technology, demand trends, opportunities and investment levels. It examines the worldwide commercial applications of the seed treatment market and the market penetration of chemical versus nonchemical seed treatment.
