Nematodes are classified into its own phylum which encompasses thousands of differing species. Microscopic in size, the majority of these soil-dwelling wormlike species are parasitic to plants and one of the main causes for crop damages. As a result, nematicides are a niche but relevant part of the crop protection industry. The 2016 crop year alone saw global sales of nematicide products reaching almost a billion dollars, according to the Global Nematicides report from Kline. Profiling 13 key countries, this report offers in-depth analysis into the main parasitic nematodes, the crops affected, and the products used for the control of these species.Continue reading
The storage of grains amassed a volume of 1.4 billion tons at peak periods across 10 key countries profiled in Kline’s Stored Grain Insect Control: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities study. The report, covering five major grain crops—corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, and barley—and factoring in minor grain crops, values the insecticide market for storage facilities across all analyzed countries to be $165 million in 2017.
“After a five-year high, global stocks for grains are expected to start slowing down in the next production season, lowering pressure of oversupply,” comments Aneesa Moolla, the project’s lead. “Immense stocks increased the demand for more storage facilities, leading to a solid growth for the storage insecticides market.”Continue reading
