Microbial agricultural inoculants are customized formulations for soils or seeds to improve plant health and to raise agricultural productivity. Microbial agricultural inoculants also called as soil inoculants are beneficial for plant growth and nutrition. The use of microbial agricultural inoculants enhances the plant growth, suppresses the diseases and increases the yield and also protects the environment. For better productivity in crops, microbial agricultural inoculants focus upon the symbiotic rhizobia that are used for the establishment of the nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with the legumes. Microbial agricultural inoculants also play an important role in the aggregation of soil and also stabilize the soil.
The growth of this market is driven by the increase in demand of organic fertilizers in the agricultural sector. Secondary factors driving the market include rise in organic and environment-friendly farming practices, rise in demand of agricultural inoculants in developing countries like Asia-Pacific and promotion by the government agencies.
Inadequate knowhow and availability coupled with physical constraints like relatively low shelf life of agricultural inoculants are the primary constraints for the market. Shoddy infrastructure, inadequate storage facilities, and hefty transportation costs, are challenges for market growth.
