(PRWEB UK) 8 July 2014
Agribusiness represents 20% of the Brazilian GDP. One of the factors contributing to the continuing strength of Brazil in the growing global grain market is the rapid adoption of high value seeds. With Brazilian grain production narrowly focused on maize and soybeans, virtually every seed gets treated, often more than once before it is planted. Kline & Company estimates that nearly 45 million hectares planted received a seed treatment in 2013 in the Brazil chapter of the Global Seed Treatment: Market Analysis and Opportunities report. With multiple treatments and crops added, such as rice and cotton, as many as 81 million hectare treatments were made to seeds in 2013.
The total seed treatment market is over USD 600 million in 2013. In terms of seed treatment fungicides, the main fungicide on a hectare treated basis is Maxim XL.
The leading insecticide seed treatment products in Brazil in terms of hectares treated are Cropstar and Standak Top.
BASF, Bayer, and Syngenta are the three leading suppliers in Brazil for the seed treatment market. FMC, Chemtura, Rotam, Arysta, Inharabras, and Mileniacluded are also among the major suppliers of seed treatment products.
