Of that, it is estimated $11 billion are in genetically modified seeds. I'd be cautious of seeds classified as an agricultural chemical product.
Global fertilizer use was merely 27 million tons in 1959 and 1960; it
increased five times to 141 million metric tons over the forty-year period
ending in 2000. The projected fertilizer demand for the year 2020 is 220
million metric tons. Intensive fertilizer use on input-responsive
cultivars grown on prime irrigated land was the basis of the green
revolution in South Asia and elsewhere that saved millions from hunger and
malnutrition. As the world population increases and cropland becomes more
valuable, total cropland acreage is beginning to diminish, increasing the
reliance on fertilizer.
Similar to fertilizer use, there has also been a rapid increase in global
pesticide use. In fact, much of the success of the green revolution
depended on the use of pesticides. Global pesticide use was four million
tons in 1970, five million tons in 1985, and six million tons in 2001. As
much as 85 percent of all pesticides are used in agriculture. The misuse
of pesticides can cause severe environmental problems, especially in
developing countries. It is estimated that chemical pollution in
agriculture costs about $100 billion in diverse public health and
environmental damage each year worldwide. The health risks are due to a
lack of or inadequate occupational and other safety standards,
insufficient enforcement, poor labeling, illiteracy, and insufficient
knowledge about the hazards of pesticides and fertilizers.
