Product Overview

Uses, Portfolios, Structures, Marketing, and Future Developments

Environmental stresses such as heat, cold and drought prevent crops from reaching their full potential productivity. The marketing of plant stress products developed initially with plant growth regulators, but has greatly expanded more recently. Certain classes of fungicides and insecticides, particularly the strobilurins and neonicotinoids, respectively, were noted to promote growth and alleviate stress when first commercialised. The understanding of the biochemistry and physiology of stress tolerance has much improved. There have been synergises with developments in genomics and plant breeding to develop stress tolerant crop varieties. In addition, there is a small but growing market for biological products.

Plant stress products from the categories of PGRs, fungicides, insecticides and biostimulants based on microorganisms and natural products are covered in this report. The technical background to understanding environmental stress and stress tolerance is described. The product portfolios and activities of the agrochemical majors and the predominant smaller companies are reviewed. Possible future developments are considered by a review recent patent applications.
