The agricultural fumigants market is driven by rapid technological advancements in the agricultural sector
An agricultural fumigant is usually utilized for killing insects, nematodes, and other plants or animals that may damage stored or cultivated agricultural produce. Agricultural fumigants are used for crops such as cereals, grains, pulses, oilseeds, fruits, and vegetables. Soil fumigants are spread or sprayed over the area to be cultivated for working into the soil to control weeds, nematodes, and other disease-causing fungi. Compounds commonly used as fumigants include methyl bromide, phosphine, and metam sodium. Agricultural fumigants are utilized before and after harvesting to protect agricultural produce from pests, soil insects, nematodes, and rodents.
The rising need for advanced technology to reduce the damage to farm produce accelerating the market growth.
The agricultural fumigants market is driven by factors such as high product usage in cereal production and increased focus on reducing post-harvest losses. The need for advanced storage technology and changing farming practices, and an increasing insect population due to climate change further fuel the growth of the agricultural fumigants market. However, residue accumulation during fumigation and stringent government regulations hampers the growth of the agricultural fumigants market. Nonetheless, developing countries are expected to offer promising growth opportunities for the agricultural fumigants market during the forecast period.
