Biological seed treatment consists of active ingredients, which may include microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria, as well as plant and algae extracts. The biological material is applied to the seeds in powder or liquid form. A uniform layer covers all the seeds and can be provided to the seeds as needed. Biological seed treatment enables plants, seeds and saplings to resist damage from pathogenic fungi. In addition, natural seed treatment can promote nitrogen fixation, stimulate cell division, root development and increase plant resistance. On the other hand, biological seed treatment is environmentally friendly and contributes to more uniform sowing and higher yields. 

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Biological seed treatment is essential for sustainable agriculture because it reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, enhances immunity, and increases the ability to absorb nutrients and resist pests and diseases and allows them to get over abiotic stress, including drought and salinity.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • Due to the COVID19 pandemic and the disruption of the supply chain, the agricultural sector is facing challenges such as labor shortages, transportation barriers, restricted market access and insufficient inventory in some areas. 
  • Producers are facing a shortage of raw materials, resulting in a decline in the output of processed seed products including biological seed treatment products.
  • The emergence of the COVID19 virus has greatly changed life on earth, affecting billions of people. The virus attack has completely changed the way of life, prompting manufacturers to adopt safety standards and strategies, which may promote the development of the market in the next few years.
  • After COVID-19, agricultural activities are normalized, which helps companies to ship products to other countries. Biological agricultural products and seed treatment agents also play an important role, because it can be an important solution for farmers all over the world.

Top Impacting Factors

  • The call for biological seed treatment has considerably extended because of excessive attention in their capability and the developing interest to the environmental and fitness dangers related to traditional chemicals. Chemical seed remedies are unfavorable to the surroundings and pose a critical chance to pollinators.
  • The neonicotinoid magnificence of pesticides is taken into consideration fantastically poisonous to honeybees. Microorganisms hired as energetic materials in pest control are diagnosed as commonly secure for the surroundings and non-goal species, in evaluation with artificial chemicals.
  • The regulatory surroundings for lively organic elements differ among nations and regions. Generally, government round the arena understand that biological seed treatment merchandise is useful however extraordinary from chemical plant safety merchandise. Moreover, this reputation has now no longer always brought about constant strategies in regulatory necessities or overview processes. 
  • In a few nations, biologicals are registered below precise regulation, or they will be registered in a comparable way as chemical plant safety merchandise. At instances, there are decreased statistics necessities, and different instances there can be no well-described system in any respect for his or her registration.
  • Biological priming is the biological process of seed treatment, which combines seed hydration and seed & microbial inoculation. In most cases, microbial inoculants are used for this purpose, such as rhizosphere microorganisms (bacteria or fungi) that promote plant growth. 
  • This is a green and environmentally friendly method that uses selected microorganisms to promote plant growth by producing substances that promote plant growth, increase nutrient absorption, or protect seedlings/plants from plant pathogens spread through soil or seeds. They are used to treat seeds, mainly as contact fungicides, and cannot protect plants from leaf disease bacteria in the later stages of plant growth.

Market Trends

  • New Development
