DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Fertigation and Chemigation Market – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Application, Product, and Country-Wise Analysis – Analysis and Forecast, 2022-2027” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global fertigation and chemigation market size was estimated to be at $11,599.0 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 8.45% and reach $18,968.6 million by 2027. The growth in the global fertigation and chemigation market is expected to be driven by factors such as high nutrient uptake and increased yield.
Market Lifecycle Stage
Fertigation, which involves applying fertilizer with irrigation water, allows the application of small amounts of fertilizer at a time, creating flexibility in the frequency of fertigation. On the other hand, chemigation is a more controlled and regulated process compared to fertigation due to the nature of chemicals such as fungicides, pesticides, insecticides, etc., used in it.
- Fertigation technique increases the crop yield with reduced fertilizer usage. Fertigation includes putting fertilizer in the moist soil area (where roots grow) and applying fertilizer frequently in small doses, resulting in increased fertilizer efficiency and reduced leaching, resulting in better tree growth, higher yield, and excellent fruit quality with less fertilizer use.
- Fertigation helps to reduce the fertilizer cost with reduced fertilizer use. It also helps tackle soil erosion by using minimal water compared to traditional irrigation practices. It prevents fertilizer leakage due to excessive water supply or heavy rainfall.
