COVID-19 Outbreak Disrupts the Raw Material Supply Chain, Slowing Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating effect on the global economy. Labor shortages for agricultural industries were a problem in many nations, especially those with periods of peak seasonal labor demand or labor-intensive output. These countries also experienced restrictions on cross-border movement of people and lockdowns. Technology integration in the agricultural industry has been viewed as having positive potential. By switching to machine-made mixing instead of traditional ways, manufacturers can make goods for their customers more profitably and efficiently.

UPL Ltd Launched a Technology-driven Seed Treatment Solution

In October 2021, UPL Ltd., a global provider of sustainable agriculture products and solutions, introduced the technology-driven seed treatment solution Electron 3-WM (3 Way Mix). The product is cost-effective since it lessens the requirement for foliar sprays throughout the early stages of the plant cycle, which lowers the production cost.

Further Report Findings-

The global seed treatment market share belongs to North America, which was valued at USD 3.56 billion in 2021. Favorable agro-economic conditions, uniformity in terms of intensification level and farmer profile, and a wide variety of agro-climatic zones and crops are the main driving forces behind it. The markets in the U.S. and Canada are attempting to deal with the growing problem of maximizing natural resources and controlling rising labor costs. Due to their high yield and low pesticide use, treated seeds are well-positioned to assist in attempts to solve the difficulties described earlier.
