About Pesticides Market
Pesticides are chemical compounds that preserve crops from pests, diseases, and weeds. They are also known as agrochemicals. These crop protection products are used to prevent, destroy, or control any pests such as insects, rodents, fungi, and unwanted plants. This is because such pests can cause harm during the production, processing, storage, transport, or marketing of food, agricultural commodities, wood and wood products, or animal feedstuff. In addition, pesticides are used in public health to kill vectors of disease such as mosquitoes
The pesticides market can be broken down into two segments, namely synthetic pesticides and biopesticides. Many different types of pesticides are meant to be effective against specific pests.
