Kynetec, the global leader in agricultural and animal health market research, collaborated with Merck Animal Health, Brakke Consulting and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) on a study designed to better understand the wellbeing and mental health of veterinarians in the United States.

The results of the Merck Animal Health Veterinary Wellbeing Study were presented at the 2018 Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX) in Orlando as well as the 2018 Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) in Las Vegas.

Key findings included that around 1 in 20 veterinarians suffer from psychological distress. Whilst this aligns with the general population, younger veterinarians (aged 45 and younger) are more impacted by the financial and emotional stresses of professional veterinary life. Of those reporting emotional distress, depression (94%), burnout (88%) and anxiety (83%) were reported most frequently. High student debt was identified as a key driver of psychological distress. Only half of veterinarians with serious psychological distress are seeking help.

Speaking at the 4th International Seminar on Seed Treatment Technology, held in conjunction with the China International Agrochemical Conference (CACW 2018), Nomman Ahmed, Senior Director of Insights & Consulting at Kynetec, presented today the latest insights on the seed treatment market.

Comparing markets, products, farmer behaviour, market profiling as well as evaluating seed treatment technology and the impact on pesticide usage, the seed treatment market has shown greater resilience than other crop protection sectors in times of overall market downturn.

“With integrated pest management moving into focus globally, growers have shown signs of opting for seed treatment over foliar treatments, when under economic pressure,” Nomman reported to the congress. “Seed treatment is also increasingly used as an add-on to growers’ regular pest management strategy,” he added.
