The global seed treatment market is expected to garner $7.8 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 8.3% during the period 2015 - 2021. The insecticide segment held a dominant share in this market in 2015 and is expected to maintain its leading position during forecast period. The cereals & grains crop segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period.

The global seed treatment market is expected to grow at a substantial pace due to its cost effectiveness and efficiency over traditional pesticides making it at better crop protection solution. The cost associated with agrochemicals application for seed treatment is low as only seeds surface needs to be covered with agrochemicals as compared to spraying or a soil application. Factors that fuel the market growth are increasing prices of genetically modified (GM) crops, rapidly growing population, rising food requirement and need for crop protection with emergence of new pest and diseases.

    Indigo AG

     We arrived in Brazil a short time ago and began our commercial operations this year, with our first offer in the market. We brought the concept of seed treatment biotechnology, which was also our first product in the United States. This season, we are only working with soybeans, but in the next, we will offer treatment for corn and then cotton. All Indigo solutions will be in Brazil in 2 years - Interview with Dario Maffei, Indigo Vice President of Global Markets Hedge

     “Peridiam Active 109 is a seed coating dedicated to cereals and it works in many combinations with different kinds of seed treatment products. It supports early plant development by adding the micronutrients zinc, manganese, and molybdenum, and provides the cereal crop with a balanced nutrient add-on at germination. Moreover, it keeps the dust level well below the critical threshold. So far we have had absolutely positive results with our Bayer SeedGrowth products like Redigo® Pro, for instance, and also Bariton® Perfect. But of course, Peridiam Active 109 is performing well with other products and combinations as well.” Making good even better: Adding micronutrients to seed coatings

     There are a lot of synthetic binders used today as dust reducing agents in seed treatment formulations, but there are not too many good natural derived binders with a more sustainable profile. A sustainable or green product needs to have a significant natural content. Akzo Nobel’s research center in Chattanooga, USA, has invented hybrid copolymerization technology.

    Simbiose Agrotecnologia Biológica

     I believe that the treatments will be divided in some formats, the first one will be kept from the already known and usual, treatment of seeds made on the farm, the other has already been implanted a few years ago, which is the treatment of Industrial seeds, where the producer acquires the seeds with all the biological treatments, and the third and last one that I believe to be the most technically advisable for the volume of biological technologies used, will be the use of equipment that is coupled to the planters so that at the moment of the planting injects the biological products in the groove with the seeds. Simbiose is technologically prepared for all three forms. Biological Seed Treatment: Innovation Boosts Billions of Business

    Koppert Biological Systems(KOPPERT B.V.)

     Koppert sees a bright future concerning biological seed treatment. More and more techniques occur to work with nature in order to get the best crop stance and plant protection. It used to be that seed treatment mainly consisted of a polymer coating and chemical fungicides plus insecticide. This to protect the plant in its early stage of development. Koppert experiences that several chemical fungicides are showing decreasing efficacy and some are banished already or are expected to be banished in the near future. Biologicals therefore have an important gap to close. Looking at the current developments, the biostimulants have started to conquer position in the market. This type of products is preparing the market for more sophisticated microbial plant protection products which not only have a proven effect as biological fungicide, nematicide or insecticide but also enhances germination and further growth at the same time.

     Syngenta has launched CLARIVA® that is a biological seed applied nematicide for cyst nematodes which we currently sell in the U.S., Canada and Brazil. It is the only biological nematicide in the market today that gets in direct contact with the nematode and kills it. In addition, under our EPIVIO™ umbrella brand for Abiotic Stress Management we sell a number of seed applied biologicals which are compatible with our Seedcare portfolio.

    SeedGrowth Portfolio

    Bayer CropScience AG

     At Bayer SeedGrowth we have always been pioneers: pioneers in ground-breaking achievements in seed applied technologies that have changed the world of farming. In the past, our collaboration with seed companies, for example, successfully created new market segments. Take the launch of Gaucho® as a sugar beet seed treatment: It truly changed the kind of yield and value sugar beets could deliver. Above all, it increased efficiency, because some foliar sprays were no longer necessary – an absolute novelty at that time. By the way: With more than 100 years of expertise in the market, we also stand for engagement and consistency. And, as Bayer, we can now speak with even more competence about sustainable agriculture with the integration and also the know-how and expertise of our new colleagues at legacy Monsanto creating the leading innovation engine in agriculture.
