The market for rice seed treatment in North America is expected to register a moderate CAGR. As of 2016, the United States was the largest market for seed treatment in North America, accounting for 89.4% and Mexico is expected to register the fastest CAGR. In order to provide some extra protection from infections, seeds are treated with chemicals and biological chemicals. Rice exports are expected to increase from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The market for rice seed treatment in North America is expected to register moderate CAGR. Exports can be increased by increasing the quality of seed treatment products.
Soil and foliar applications of agrochemicals are important tools for the productive management of crops and have a significant commercial relevance worldwide. However, the limitations in using soil and 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; these germinating seeds and young plants do not have sufficient food reserves to recover from such effects and survive in stressful conditions. Therefore, the alternative of seed treatment is increasingly being adopted.
Lack of general awareness of cost-effective, better environment-friendly and productivity increasing new rice seed treatment technologies are major restraints, especially in the markets of developing nations, leading to low adoption rates. While majority of the seeds in the United States undergo seed treatment, it is as low as 20% in the developing nations. Most of the farmers have not been using rice seed treatment due to the lack of knowledge about the advantages of treatment and high-costs involved in purchasing agro-chemicals. The situation of paucity of encouraging government policies, lack of clear knowledge regarding the benefits from rice seed treatment, and low access to the latest rice seed treatment technologies need to be addressed positively for successful expansion of the scope for seed treatment markets.
