Agricultural packaging prevents agricultural products from spoilage before reaching the end consumers. Agricultural packaging products include bulk bags, silo bags, pouches, clamshells, bottles, and trays. Agricultural packaging products consist of materials such as plastics, glass, jute, and paperboards.

The plastic used for agricultural packaging are manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and polypropylene (PP).The agrochemicals industry also employs agricultural packaging. Pesticides and fertilizers are toxic in nature. Hence they need advanced agriculture packaging which will reduce the risk while handling, transporting and storing Agricultural packaging used for pesticides and fertilizer are designed for better sealing, operating  issues and avoid any failure of packaging. These packaging increase shelf life and reduce loss during transportation of agricultural products.

Increase in disposable income in developing countries is boosting the standard of living, which is propelling the consumption of packaged foods. This, in turn, is driving the demand for agricultural packaging. The agricultural packaging market for agrochemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers is anticipated to grow steadily due to trade opportunities for agrochemicals considering the factors such as encouraging government regulations, increased demand for fertilizers and acceptance of biological across the Instability in prices of raw materials and trend of recyclable packaging are restraining the global agricultural packaging market.
