Understanding organic pest control

There was a time when our agriculture scientists as well as farmers believed that with the invention of various types of chemical pesticides they had overcome the problem of pests or bugs in crops. Undoubtedly the initial success was marvelous and soon people began to put their whole trust solely on chemical pesticides and began to use in over dosage, which resulted in the progressive accumulation of pesticide residues into the soil.

Application or use of high dosage of chemical pesticides causes deterioration of the soil fertility as well as accumulation of harmful elements and compounds in the soil takes place. Hence farmers realized the need of turning to organic farming and utilization of organic pesticides.
