· The United States seed treatment market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
· Seed treatment offers effective seed protection from pathogens, insects, and other pests, in addition to contributing to the healthy and uniform-stand establishment of a variety of crops produced.
· Seed treatment products, applied to nearly every acre of corn planted in the United States every year, helped support nearly USD 80 billion worth of crops grown by the American farmers.
Seed treatment is a process of treating seeds with chemicals and non-chemical methods before plantation. It is an eco-friendly way of using a small amount of insecticides and fungicides. Conventional agrochemicals have been used widely in seed treatment for many years, in order to protect seeds against various stresses in the seedbed. Seed scientists investigated many other enhancements in the past few years. Seed enhancement in this context goes beyond seed hydration (priming), coating, and pelleting of the seed, and currently includes improved performance in a wide range of planting or storage environments.

High costs associated with hybrids and genetically modified seeds are among the major factors driving the growth of the seed treatment market. Seed treatment is being increasingly considered by farmers as a mode to protect investments made on good-quality seeds, due to an increase in regulatory issues relating to fumigation, as well as the foliar application of pesticides. The cost of seeds is expected to increase, owing to an increase in the demand for high-quality seeds with desirable agronomic traits. Both companies and farmers are ready to spend on seed-treatment solutions, in order to save high-quality seeds. Since most of the GM seeds are costly and treated with biological and chemical treatments, there is an increase in the area under GM crops, which is positively affecting the market growth.
