The Benefits of Biopesticides

Biopesticides are produced from natural botanical and microbiological sources, such as plants, minerals and microorganisms. Their agricultural applications include pests and fungi control and as well as control of diseases, which result from pathogenic bacteria and affect crops in various parts of the world.

 

With increasing demand for alternatives to chemicals in pest and disease control, biopesticides offer an effective alternative to traditional pesticides. International laws and regulations together with consumer demand for residue-free food, position biopesticides as the ideal companion for crop protection strategies. Biopesticides are a natural part of sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture and are safe for the neighboring fauna.

Benefits to Growers

Biopesticides protect crops naturally, resulting in higher yield and better crop quality.

They have shorter or no safety cycles. By using biopesticides in rotation with traditional pesticides, growers can increase food safety and reduce residue.

Biopesticides are useful in resistance management strategies.

Ideal for Integrated Pest Management programs, Biopesticides help optimize treatment efficacy while reducing the effect of chemicals on people and the environment.

When applied correctly, Biopesticides allow biological control organisms to fight pest insects and play an important role in control strategies.
