Market Drivers & Restraints


The agriculture sector is directly dependent on demand of food consumption, by consumers worldwide. Consumers now days are more health conscious. Organic Food farming provides more nutrients for human body. Agricultural Inoculants acts as a medium of providing such large nutrients from farm soil to crops. The increase in demand of fertilizer and pesticide for improved growth and increased yield from farming several varieties of crops is also creating more increased supply for Agricultural Inoculants.  


Farmers in countries like India and Brazil are not highly educated. The technicalities associated with use of Bacterial and Fungal inoculants are hindering the purchase of agriculture Inoculants. Local government are hiring professional to educate and make farmer more aware with technicalities related to agriculture inoculants. Farmer’s suicide is becoming more common in developing countries. Farmers hesitate to continue farming because farming is a slow seasonal process. Certain crops can be farmed according to climatic conditions.
