Fumigation, entailing the administration of a pesticide gas into the soil or air to eliminate pests, has found widespread use in the field of agriculture. Agricultural fumigants are injected into the soil to rid them of soil insects, weeds, nematodes, and rodents such as moles. Then there are fumigant pesticides used after harvest to kill small insects and fungi in grains and crops. Structural fumigation again is used to get rid of bed bugs and termites by filling the space inside a structure created with a tent with a toxic gas.

The different types of agricultural fumigants available in the market are phosphine, chloropicrin, metam sodium, methyl bromide, and 1, 3-dichloropropene. Among them, the methyl bromide segment accounts for maximum share in the market. Going forward, however, the phosphine segment is slated to outshine all others in terms of growth owing to its widespread usage in grain storage systems.
Depending upon application, the global market of agricultural fumigants can again be segmented into soil and warehouse. Of the two, the warehouse segment holds a greater market share because of the pressing need to bring down post-harvest losses of stored crops. Warehouse fumigation essentially entails fumigating crops in packed or unpacked conditions, stored in godowns, or in storage. Soil fumigants find application in controlling growth in weed and in eliminating parasites such as nematodes.
Among form segments, the liquid form segment leads the market followed by the gaseous form segment.
Global Agricultural Fumigants Market: Regional Outlook
