What are Controlled Release Fertilizer?

Controlled-release fertilizers (CRFs) are granular fertilizers coated with inorganic or organic materials that gradually release nutrients into the soil for plants. They are soluble in water and possess a controllable rate, pattern, and duration of nutrient release, which depends on the temperature of the soil and the thickness of the coating outside of the granules. As a result, they save time, improve nutrient efficiency, minimize nutrient and fertilizer loss, increase crop yields, reduce application, and labor costs and environmental impact, and offer optimal plant development. Owing to these properties, CRF is gaining immense traction among farmers for enhancing crop yield and quality.

What Are The Growth Prospects And Trends In The Controlled Release Fertilizer Industry?

The market is primarily driven by the rising food demand and the growing population across the globe. In addition, the increasing use of CRFs to enhance soil properties, improve land productivity, and meet the surging demands of individuals is contributing to market growth.

Moreover, governments of various countries are taking initiatives to promote the use of CRF by providing tax credits and incentives, representing another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the widespread adoption of sustainable agricultural practices due to a shortage of food crops and adverse climatic conditions is providing a positive thrust to market growth. Furthermore, extensive investment in research and development (RD) activities to develop advanced technologies such as suspension polymerization for the slow release of fertilizers and mergers and acquisitions (MA) amongst key players are also creating a favorable market outlook across the globe.
