Industrial Vegetation Management Market of Pesticides and Fertilizers

Industrial Vegetation Management Market of Pesticides and Fertilizers Proves “Slow and Steady Wins the Race,” Comments Kline Expert

The weeds are growing! Close to $1 billion was spent around the globe on industrial vegetation management (IVM) applications in 2013. That is the exciting news emerging from the recently completed Global Industrial Vegetation Management of Pesticides and Fertilizers: Market Analysis and Opportunities study from globally recognized consulting and market research firm Kline & Company.

The IVM market is about controlling weeds. When weeds grow, they impede such activities as moving electricity across power lines, keeping grazing lands available to fatten cattle, keeping highways and railroad lines safe for passenger and freight traffic, replanting harvested forest land, and maintaining inland water bodies so they are clean, safe, and available for recreation.Continue reading

Crop Protection Industry Sales Remain Strong in 2013, According to Kline

Affected by prolonged rainfall, weed resistance issues, and higher manufacturing costs the U.S. crop protection industry remained strong in 2013, posting an 8.2% increase over the previous year. Net manufacturers’ sales within the crop protection industry total $9.2 billion, according to the recently published Crop Protection Manufacturers Report: A Strategic Market Analysis of the U.S. Crop Protection Industry by worldwide consulting and research firm Kline & Company.

In anticipation of a healthy planting season, corn growers purchased high inventories of herbicides but excessive spring wetness in the Corn Belt and throughout the country caused almost 2 million acres to remain fallow and deferred spring planting, forcing some corn growers to switch to short maturity soybean varieties. The wet conditions reduced insect pressure, causing the insecticide segment to decline at a double-digit percentage while promoting disease pressure and modestly increasing fungicide sales. However, many growers halted or did not start fungicide applications as the wet weather was soon replaced by the summer time droughts. The plant growth regulators segment declines slightly as it heavily targets the cotton markets where acres planted decrease almost 16% in 2013. Continue reading
