The development of standards for biostimulants is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global agricultural biotechnology market 2018-2022. The adoption of the strong regulatory framework is essential for the biostimulants market to assure the spread of safe products. Consequently, several countries have developed standards that must be adhered to by the vendors in the biostimulants market. For instance, in the US, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 included a definition of biostimulants in section 9201. Also, the European Parliament passed a plenary vote in 2016, which was instrumental in defining and setting up the market for biostimulants in Europe. Thus, the development of standards for biostimulants will impact market growth.
