With higher growth of agriculture, the protection for crops and the for the environment too increases. For protecting the agriculture many different types of chemicals, practices, protecting systems are been introduced in the market. Crop protection chemicals are commonly known as pesticides. They play an effective and vital role in protecting the agriculture. The crop protecting chemicals helps out the crops and the fields to stay free from insects, unwanted plants and to get prevention from various plant related diseases.

Herbicides are used for killing or inhibiting the growth of unwanted plants. With the selective herbicides, the target in the weed is affected more than that of the crop. The herbicide is degraded more quickly within the crop. The types of herbicides are, Translocated herbicides, Contact herbicides, Residual herbicides, non-residual herbicides and Herbicide mixtures and sequential applications. The aim of using herbicides is to improve agricultural productivity by killing unwanted herbs and weeds in the plantation. Hence, increase in demand for high agricultural productivity to meet the global food demands majorly drives the growth of the herbicides market.

The recent addition of Actual Market Research, under the title of- Global Herbicides Market Outlook, 2026, the ease of using herbicides was compared to manual weed control is the major driver in the market, which aided the growth of 4.10% CAGR historically. The market of herbicides has reached to 35000 million USD. Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in history. The most trends in the market are the introduction of herbicide-resistant crops which however are not the permanent solution to weed control. These crops are a huge part of the integrated weed management program. According to the FAO, North America and Asia Pacific holds the highest market of 2,4D herbicide products. With these regions other regions like Europe is the second largest market for herbicides.

The main global market of herbicide is held by Glyphosate. Glyphosate is an herbicide that is commonly applied to the leaves of plants to kill both broadleaf plants and grasses. The sodium salt form of glyphosate is used to regulate plant growth and ripen specific crops. Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States. Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide to prevents the plants from making certain proteins that are needed for plant growth. It specifically stops the enzyme pathway also known as “shikimic acid pathway” which is necessary for plants and microorganisms. When Glyphosate comes with contact with soil, binds tightly with the soil. It can stay into the soil for up to 6 months depending on the type of soil. The bacteria present in the soil helps it to break down into the soil. Glyphosate comes in many different forms like an acid or several salts. These can be solid or in liquid. U.S. has over 750 types of pesticides containing Glyphosate.

Many crop protecting chemicals contains toxicity in different forms like salts, esters and acids. We know that toxicity is harmful for humans, but for protecting the agriculture we need some sort of toxicities to prevent the problems. For the same there are herbicides like 2 and 4 D which helps in protecting the crop’s quality and it’s not that much harmful for the agriculture. Generally, they have low toxicity, except few acids and salts. The 2,4D products are generally used for controlling aquatic weeds.  The 2, 4D herbicides are mainly used on residential lawns, roadways, and cropland. Crops that are widely treated with the same are, corn, soybeans, spring wheat, hazelnuts, sugarcanes and barley.
