Agricultural packaging plays a crucial role in the agricultural sector, as a significant amount of agricultural products are lost during handling transportation and while storing. 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.
