Application of Biodegradable Pesticides in India

  • C. R. Krishna Murti

Ever since man organized agriculture as a profession, pesticides in some form or another have been in use in plant protection. The rapid strides of the last four decades resulting from the synthesis, manufacture, and application of new man-made chemical compounds in pest control have, however, brought about the dramatic changes in agriculture. By keeping in check many species of unwanted pests and weeds, pesticides have made a great impact on the production and preservation of food, fiber, and other cash crops. The introduction of pesticides has initiated revolutionary changes in farm practice, leading to the incredible possibility that hunger can be banished forever from the earth. So much for the credits of pesticides.
