Better agricultural methods must be used in order to stop post-harvest loss and meet the increased demand for food caused by the world's growing population. Because they aid in safeguarding agricultural output from pests, this has significantly influenced the market for agricultural fumigants. On the other side, governments' strict rules are stifling the expansion of their industry because the process uses dangerous gases that can hurt people. In actuality, only government-certified applicators carry out fumigation.
Agricultural fumigants come in a variety of forms, including phosphine, chloropicrin, metam sodium, methyl bromide, and 1, 3-dichloropropene. The methyl bromide sector among them holds the largest market share. However, due to its widespread use in grain storage systems, the phosphine segment is expected to outperform all others in terms of growth going forward.
The agricultural fumigants market can be further divided into soil and warehouse based on application. Due to the urgent requirement to reduce post-harvest losses of stored crops, the warehouse segment of the two holds a larger market share. In essence, warehouse fumigation means fumigating crops that are packed or unpacked, kept in godowns or in storage. Utilizing soil fumigants can help limit weed development and get rid of parasites like nematodes.
