The technologies in seed treatment have undergone significant changes in recent years, with fungicide treatment to biological seed treatment. The rising wave of new technologies, such as seed pelleting are creating significant potential for seed treatment in various agrochemical platforms due to the enhancement in seed germination, protection of germinating seeds and seedlings against soil and seed-borne pathogens/insects.

In the seed treatment market, various technologies, such as seed coating, seed dressing, and seed pelleting technologies are used in the insecticides, fungicide, and bio-control applications. Increased demand in the agriculture sector and rising R&D initiatives to improve yield are creating new opportunities for various seed treatment technologies.
