Advancements in Agriculture: The Micronutrients Foliar Sprays Segment

Micronutrients foliar sprays have emerged as a significant driver of the foliar spray market. These sprays, comprising specific compounds or combinations of micronutrients, have proven to be more efficient than soil applications. They improve plant internal processes, cell homeostasis, water relations, and productivity under abiotic challenges. Furthermore, foliar sprays supply nutrients directly to the leaves, ensuring easy absorption.

The demand for high-quality and nutritious crops has increased, leading to a surge in the use of foliar sprays. By providing essential micronutrients, these sprays enhance the quality of crops and meet consumers' expectations. Farmers have recognized the importance of micronutrients in plant growth and are adopting foliar sprays to supply these vital nutrients. Manufacturers are also investing in research and development, focusing on advanced foliar spray formulations that enhance nutrient uptake and absorption by plants. These advancements contribute to the growth of the foliar spray market.

Liquid Foliar Sprays: A Driving Force in 2023

The liquid foliar sprays segment holds a significant share in the foliar spray market, driving its growth in 2023. These sprays consist of water and essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and micronutrients like iron, manganese, and zinc.
