Agricultural disinfectants are available in several forms such as aerial, water sanitizing, liquid, powder, and granular. Suitable disinfections are required for optimum protection of livestock and crops to sterilize unwanted and harmful microorganisms. To safeguard livestock, disinfectants are used on their surface, in drinking water, and yards to prevent the attack of harmful diseases. Thus, frequent removal of manure and routine cleanliness results in better health of the livestock population.

Emergence of novel techniques for vegetable production in greenhouses and vertical farming, rapid increase in demand for animal products, growth in occurrence of disease outbursts among livestock, and prohibition on antibiotics in animal feed drive the global agricultural disinfectants market. This has further directed to a significant demand for disinfectants, especially in crops, for optimum production and to achieve efficient food yield.
