Dicamba reaches in weeds through the roots and leaf with a short soil residual. Dicamba may cause illness to human by ingestion or skin absorption. Dicamba has three major applications such as turf, agriculture, and lawn. Dicamba increases the plant growth rate and these herbicides are used for reducing the crop loss, thus leads to increase in crop yield. Dicamba used in various types of crops such as oilseeds, grains & cereals, pulses, and fruits & vegetables among others.
Major factors driving the growth of benzoic acid herbicide market include increase in crop loss due to weeds, growing demand for quality food products, rise in awareness about the crop protection, and product approval from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Moreover, development in agriculture farming practice technologies, increase in the use of dicamba herbicide in materials and chemicals industry, and rise in prices of agriculture products are anticipated to propel the dicamba market. However, pending regulatory consents, increase in the weed herbicide resistance, and instability of the dicamba leads to drift damage might impede the revenue of herbicide market over the forecast period.
