Selective Herbicides Market Size, Key Companies, Trends, Growth and Regional Forecasts Research 2030

The global selective herbicides market size is anticipated to expand steadily over the next few years owing to the growing awareness about the wide-ranging benefits of selective herbicides, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Selective Herbicides Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (2,4-D, Dicamba, Aminopyralid, Others (Chlorsulfuron, Clopyralid, and Others)), By Crop Type (Cereals, Vegetables & Fruits, Oilseeds, Others (Lawns, Aquatic Plants, and Others))and Regional Forecast, 2030”. Selective herbicides are employed to control or prevent the emergence of species in plants, while leaving the desired crop generally unharmed. According to the Government of Western Australia’s Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, selective post-emergent herbicides deliver high levels of target control and provide an additional advantage of improved crop yield. These herbicides, the Department highlights, can be fine-tuned to match the s present in the paddock and their timing of application is flexible to align with the environmental conditions, crop growth stage, and size. These benefits, therefore, are stoking the adoption of selective herbicides among agriculturists worldwide.

Increasing Yield Losses by Attacks to Stoke Adoption of Selective Herbicides

attacks on crops and plants have deeply affected agricultural productivity and farm yield, leading to massive economic losses. According to a study by the University of Queensland in Australia, uncontrolled growth cause losses worth AUD 3.3 billion annually to Australian farmers, translating to 2.7 million tons of grain loss at the national level. In developing countries, the losses are even more staggering. In India, for example, s cost the Indian agriculture sector over USD 11 billion each year, with the biggest losses witnessed in peanuts in 2018. Moreover, due to the climatic conditions and the adverse effects of global warming, crops in developing and underdeveloped economies have been subject to frequent pest attacks, as pointed out by a recent study published in the journal ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’. India, for example, has faced around 10 major and pest attacks in the last 15 years, the latest one being the fall armyworm attack that devastated the maize crop in 2018. Selective herbicides are therefore high in demand in these countries as their governments are rapidly adopting management solutions to ensure stable farm yield.
