By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “United States of America Planting and Fertilizing Machinery Market – By Type and Application- Market Shares, Forecasts And Trends (2015 – 2020)” report to their offering.

The Unites States planting and fertilizing machinery market is expected to grow into a USD 1.9 billion market by 2020.

Planting and fertilizing machinery offers solutions to crop farmers to sow the seeds for crop production and spread fertilizers. Despite the fact that tractors and combine harvesters are used widely across the globe, planting and fertilizing machinery use is in growing stages and is in succession to tractors to reduce manual intervention in agriculture. Apart from increasing efficiency, mechanization in planting helps in increasing precision agricultural practices.

The growth observed in the sales of tractors is an important indicator for the advent of farm mechanization. Tractors tend to act as a source of power whereby various agricultural machines can just be attached to it. This co-dependency makes the purchase other equipment easier, once the tractor is purchased. The increasing levels of competition and market uncertainties have led to a large degree of farm consolidations in many regions; thereby increasing the need for farm mechanization.

The major hindrance to this market is not from the product itself but form the fertilizers. The negative environmental impact of using fertilizers has been well documented and is posing a major threat to the market. The high labor costs of the region also drive the mechanization process rapidly.
