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

Need for Stabilizing the Yield

A growing population coupled with declining arable land area creates the need for increased productivity. According to the World Bank, in 2016, agriculture land in France was 52.4% and is constantly decreasing. So the agricultural producers will be required to become more efficient and more productive to create enough food for a growing population. Various seed treatment techniques like coating, pelleting, phytosanitary treatment and microbial inoculation are being practiced to overcome the changing climatic factors and pest incidence so as make yield unaffected. According to FAO, in 2017 wheat yield was 72538 hg/ha in France but it has seen a decline in 2018 where the production was 68427 hg/ha. In 2016 the yield was even low to reach 52896 hg per ha. This indicates the fluctuating yield level in various years in France. So in order to stabilize this variating yield level seed treatment can be performed, Thus driving the seed treatment market.
