Our industrial agricultural system relies heavily on pesticides, which control weeds, kill insects and stave off fungi. More than billion pounds of pesticides are applied annually to crops in the US 1, mostly in combination with seeds that are genetically engineered to withstand escalating use of pesticides in recent decades has become a public health hazard, an environmental. Pesticides May Be Used Only as a Last Resort. Perhaps the most important point in the discussion about the use of pesticides in organic agriculture is the fact that the organic rules require that approved synthetic pesticides be used only as a last resort.
Indeed, pesticide drift is an insidious threat to human health as well as to wildlife and ecosystems in and around agricultural and even residential areas where harsh chemicals are . Pesticides are chemical compounds that are used to kill pests, including insects, rodents, fungi and unwanted plants (weeds). Pesticides are used in public health to kill vectors of disease, such as mosquitoes, and in agriculture, to kill pests that damage crops.
Increases in the amount of agricultural products and decreases in the number of parasitic diseases are the positive outcomes of using such chemicals. About , cases of pesticide poisoning are reported annually and, in addition, about cases of death are recorded. Worldwide, 40% of pesticide use is contributed to herbicides, 17% to insecticides, and 10% to fungicides. By using pesticides to ensure maximum crop yield, farmers are able to save money. Some estimates suggest there is a 4-time return on pesticide investments. The negative consequences of pesticide use, however, are many.

Most pesticides are used in agriculture, but in about 74% of households in USA were reported to use at least one pesticide in the home.
c) Use has risen in developing countries and the fastest growing markets in Africa, Asia, South and Central America, Eastern Mediterranean. There is a high pesticide use on crops grown for export (Dr. Pesticide Manufacturing in the US industry trends () Pesticide Manufacturing in the US industry outlook () poll Average industry growth x.x lock Purchase this report or a membership to unlock the average company profit margin for this industry.
Because pesticides are toxic, they are also potentially hazardous to humans, animals, other organisms, and the environment. Therefore, people who use pesticides or regularly come in contact with them must understand the relative toxicity, potential health effects, and preventative measures to reduce exposure to the products they use.
Pesticides can prolong the life of crops and prevent post-harvest losses. Currently, about million people around the world – one in seven of us – are going hungry.
To reduce hunger, we need to increase food productivity. Pesticides help farmers do that. Pesticides enable farmers to produce safe, quality foods at affordable prices. There were some cases of harm from misuse of the chemicals. But the new pesticides seemed rather safe, especially compared to the forms of arsenic that had killed people in the s and s However, problems could arise through the indiscriminate use and in these were highlighted by Rachel Carson in her book Silent Spring This.
Pesticides. Through the ages, it seems increasingly that people find a need to minimize the damage of pests with the use of pesticide chemicals and by other means .Of the many examples of how pests have impacted human society, one of the most infamous is the Black Plague in Europe in the 14th century, when millions of people died from mysterious diseases.

Agricultural technology - Agricultural technology - Pesticides: The problem of persistence in pesticides can be highlighted by noting that this attribute exists in a range from moderately persistent (a lifetime of one to 18 months—2,4-D, atrazine); persistent (lifetime up to 20 years—DDT, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, toxaphene); or permanent (lead, mercury, and arsenic).
This book presents clear overviews of key factors in chemical pesticide use, including: Advances in genetic engineering not only of pest-resistant crops but also of pests themselves.
