Rising instances of herbicide-induced crop damage.

While without lowering the activity of herbicides on undesired and pervasive weed species, herbicide safeners can selectively protect crop plants from herbicide damage. Various safeners are used commercially to improve the herbicide choosiness between crop and weed species, which can either be applied along with the herbicide as a mixture or as a seed treatment to the crop seed. Research conducted by IACR-Long Ashton Research Station in the United Kingdom inferred that the plants preserved with a seed-dressing of the herbicide safener, naphthalic anhydride (NA), before smearing herbicide suffered less damage as compared to the plants grown from untreated seed.

Herbicide safeners are applied in the pre/post-emergence treatment of crops to get better results in terms of yield and quality. Thus, the growing instances and increasing awareness of herbicide damage to the crop are probable to fuel the demand for herbicide safener-based formulations.

Within the report, the market is segmented into product type, crop, and geography. By type, the market is further segmented into benoxacor, furilazole, dichloride, isoxadifen, and others.

Creating safer mixtures of herbicides with biological sources

Formulated bioherbicides commonly contain the active ingredient, a living biotic agent, a carrier, and adjuvants. These may contain nutrients and other substances to nurture the agent. It acts as a protectant during exposure to adverse environmental conditions, assists host infection, and supports optimum weed control efficacy. Natural herbicides provide several benefits over chemical herbicides, including excellent selectivity and few adverse effects in organisms other than the target species. They often do not leave residues and occasionally present cases with resistance indicators.

The rising adoption of the soybean segment in the herbicide safener market

Providing both protein and oil, soybeans are a significant crop for the world. In 2017, the USDA reported that 88% of the soybean crop was crushed and processed for industrial uses. Mainly to produce animal feed. To meet the rising domestic demand, China is quickly emerging as a significant soybean importer from several nations. The most popular herbicide safener in combination with S-metolachlor, atrazine, and other active ingredients in the herbicides is businesses like Tenkoz, Syngenta, Corteva Agriscience, ADAMA that already have herbicides mixed in.
