DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 27, 2018--The “Plant Activators Market by Crop Type (Fruits & Vegetables, Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds & Pulses, Turf & Ornamentals), Mode of Application (Foliar Spray, Soil Treatment), Source (Biological, Chemical), Form, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The plant activators market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6%, to reach a value of USD 878.38 Million by 2023 from USD 636.76 Million in 2018.

Plant activators are chemicals that induce plant defense responses to a broad spectrum of pathogens. They activate the defense genes in plants by providing signals via the signal transduction pathway mediated by salicylic acid. Since plant activators do not have any pesticide or antibiotic activity, their adverse effects on human health and the environment are minimal. In addition, since they do not interact directly with the pathogens, it is unlikely that plant pathogens develop resistance to these chemicals.
