COVID-19 impact on Seed Treatment market

The biological seed treatment market includes major Tier I and II suppliers like BASF SE (Germany), Bayer AG (Germany), Novozymes A/S (Denmark), Syngenta Group (Switzerland) and Corteva Agriscience (US).  These suppliers have their manufacturing facilities spread across various countries across Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and RoW. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there had been a supply chain disruption, due to which the agricultural sector had to face problems, such as labor unavailability, transportation barriers, restriction for market access, and the lack of inventories in some regions. Many manufacturers were facing issues due to the lack of raw material availability, which led to the reduction of seed treatment product manufacturing that includes biological seed treatment products. Post COVID-19, the agricultural activities have normalized, which has helped the companies to deliver products to the required places. Similar to the other biological agricultural product, seed treatment product also plays an important role, as it has been able to serve as an important solution for farmers across the globe.

Seed Treatment Market Dynamics

Driver: Environmental concerns associated with chemical seed treatment

The demand for biological seed treatment has significantly increased as a result of high awareness of their potential and the growing attention to the environmental and health risks associated with conventional chemicals. Chemical seed treatments are detrimental to the environment and pose a serious risk to pollinators. The neonicotinoid class of insecticides is considered highly toxic to honeybees. Microorganisms employed as active substances in pest management are recognized as generally safe for the environment and non-target species, in comparison with synthetic chemicals.

Restraints: Government regulatory barriers

The regulatory environment for active biological ingredients differs between countries and regions. Generally, authorities around the world recognize that biological seed treatment products are beneficial but different from chemical plant protection products. Moreover, this recognition has not necessarily led to consistent approaches in regulatory requirements or review processes. In some countries, biologicals are registered under specific legislation or they may be registered in a similar manner as chemical plant protection products. At times, there are reduced data requirements, and other times there may be no well-defined process at all for their registration.

Opportunities: Use of bio-priming techniques for improved efficacy

Bio-priming is a process of a biological seed treatment that refers to a combination of seed hydration and inoculation of the seed with microbes. In most cases, microbial inoculants, such as plant growth-promoting rhizo-microorganisms (bacteria or fungi), are used for the purpose of bio-priming of seeds. It is an environment-friendly ecological approach using selected microorganisms that enhance plant growth by producing plant growth-promoting substances, enhancing nutrient uptake, or protecting seedlings/plants against soil-/seed-borne plant pathogenic organisms. The use of such techniques is on the rise as chemicals used for seed treatment mostly act as contact fungicides that are unable to protect the plants from foliar pathogens during the later stages of crop growth.

Challenges:Inconsistent performance and incompatibility with certain pesticides

The features of biological seed treatments that have discouraged investment are their inconsistent results. The most common problems encountered during the usage of such products include desiccation and environmental conditions that discourage their growth. Successful inoculants with one crop may not work as effectively with another crop. For instance, Trichoderma is more effective for the increase in yield in tomatoes than cucumbers. Choosing just one or two microbes is not as effective as loading with an entire community. However, effectiveness can sometimes be increased by a combination of microbes, with various growth requirements. For instance, fungi can be combined with PGPR.
