Introduction of Cost-Efficient CRF Fertilizers to Help Market Gain Impetus

The American Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO) define controlled-release fertilizers (CRFs) as fertilizers that delay nutrient availability for plant uptake and use after application. As global populations rise, governments are focusing on food security, which is expected to boost the growth of the delayed-release fertilizers market. Additionally, companies are developing cost-effective and encapsulated CRF fertilizers, further driving market revenue for slow-release fertilizers in the forecast period.

Growing environmental concerns are encouraging agriculturists, farmers, and others to optimize fertilizer use for enhanced nutrient uptake in crops. According to analysts at Fortune Business Insights™, this will reduce environmental stress and expand the CRF fertilizer market in the coming years. However, the absence of robust regulations for protecting controlled-release fertilizers may hinder market growth during the forecast period. Despite this, government initiatives and educational programs for farmers are anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for the controlled-release fertilizer market in the near future.
