What is agricultural pheromones?

Agricultural pheromones are chemical substances produced by organisms, especially insects, to communicate with others of the same species. In agriculture, these pheromones are used to manipulate insect behavior for pest control or to enhance crop pollination. They can be synthesized and deployed in various ways, such as traps or dispensers, to disrupt mating patterns, attract or repel insects, or modify their behavior to benefit agricultural practices. The use of agricultural pheromones can help reduce the reliance on chemical pesticides and promote more environmentally friendly pest management strategies.

North America is expected to have the fastest growing rate during the forecast period.

The market for pheromones is growing in North America owing to the widening scope of applications in not only agriculture but also in forestry and for industrial purposes, such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Some of the majorly grown agricultural crops in the region include cotton, tomatoes, grapes, corn, pome fruits, and stone fruits. These are some of the crops that are prone to attacks from various insect species, such as the pink bollworm, leaf miner, codling moth, and berry moths. Effective pheromone controls are needed nowadays since global agriculture faces increasing pest resistance that renders conventional insecticides less effective and increasing pressure from governments and consumers demand safer and greener food production.
