Bio-organic pesticides have opened a new path for crop protection in sustainable agriculture and reformulated the growth of agriculture at large. The recent advent of bio-organic crop protection has necessary implications on the crop yield, economics, and environment by changing the growth tactics of the pest and decreasing severe pesticide residues in the environment that in turn will promote the development and growth of flora and fauna in the eco-region.
Movements to pursue environmental sustainability and a more sustainable future have been active for decades because crops are vulnerable to attacks. According to the UN FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), pest infestation causes about 20 -40% of waste in farm produce annually.
Some biopesticide manufacturers say their products are safer for the environment than chemical pesticides. This could only mean one thing. The biopesticide market is about to surge as it is expected to exceed USD 3.3 Billion by 2026, per an estimate from a Global Market Insights Inc. report.
While this transition shows great prospects for the future of sustainable agriculture, the question remains: can the world be sustainable now and in the future?
