Herbicides dominated the market

  • Argentina is known for its vast agricultural lands, favorable climate, and agricultural expertise, making it one of the major agricultural producers and exporters globally. The country's agricultural sector is focused on high-yield production to meet domestic and international demand. Pesticides play a significant role in ensuring higher yields by reducing losses caused by pests and diseases. Argentina occupied the second-highest share of 13.9% by value of the South American crop protection chemicals market in 2022.
  • Weed attacks on crops are the most common across the country. Fleabane, pigweed, johnsongrass, goosegrass, finger grass, and barnyard grass majorly impact the yield of major field crops. Argentina has a high demand for its wheat, soybean, and maize crops, and weeds pose a significant threat to this demand. Thus, weed management is necessary in the country. Herbicides occupied the highest share of 86.8% by value in 2022. Glyphosate is the most commonly used herbicide in the country.
  • Most pests and diseases attack the foliage of crops, hindering the further growth of the plant. Thus, the foliar mode of application is highly preferred in the application of fungicides and insecticides and accounted for the second-highest share of 31.6% by value in 2022.
  • The growing demand for major grains and oilseeds domestically and internationally, coupled with increased concerns for food security and various developments, facilitated efficient methods of cultivation, minimizing the impact of pests on their crops. This has driven the market, which is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period (2023-2029).
