Seed treatment chemicals play an important role in diagnosing and controlling pre-season diseases and insect attacks. These chemicals assist in improving crop stand establishment and vigor capacity. Seed treatments chemicals provide effective control against early season, below-ground, and above-ground pests and diseases. Effective utilization of insecticide and fungicide seed treatment products enables uniform seedling emergence, healthier crops, and reduced insect and disease damage. Emerging seed treatment techniques compose of significantly lower amount of active ingredients, making them environmentally sustainable. Increase in adoption rate of seed treatment chemicals and growth in awareness regarding advancements in seed treatment technologies are likely to boost the demand for seed treatment chemicals in the next few years.
