Canada Seed Treatment Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Canada Seed Treatment Market according to our research experts:

Regulated Legal Framework

In Canada, the PMRA administers the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA) which regulates all pest control products. Growing awareness among farmers over the use of seed treatment has resulted in support from the government. Various regulations and government agencies are encouraging the use of seed treatments. The Food and Drugs Act (FDA) prohibits the sale and distribution of contaminated and adulterated food. In the case of agricultural chemicals, whenever the residue exceeds the prescribed maximum residue limit (MRL). According to USDA, seeds treated with seed treatment chemicals increase the marketability of seeds and help companies to expand in new markets. Therefore, it is mandatory by USDA to treat all commercially available seeds before selling them on a commercial scale. In addition, neonic seed treatments have a harmful impact on the environment, especially bees, which led to the introduction of regulatory restrictions on neonics in North America. Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Canadian Seed Growers Association (CSGA), Canadian Seed Institute (CSI), Registered Seed Establishments (RSE's), Authorized Seed Crop Inspection Services (ASCIS) and Licensed Seed Crop Inspectors (LSCI) are some of the major actors with regulatory authorities.

Increasing Limitations Associated With Soil/Foliar Application

Soil & foliar applications of agrochemicals are important tools for the productive management of crops and have significant commercial relevance. However, the limitations in using soil & foliar applications are increasing due to the impact of their use on the environment as well as other aspects. It has been observed that the seeds and seedlings show high vulnerability to many soil-borne and foliar pests. Seed treatment helps with the increased possibility of germination in unfavorable conditions like dry or cold soil, and efficiently sowing in fields with a history of stand establishment problems.
