Abstract Share this page

The dawn of human civilization came with the need of producing and safe guarding food for sustaining current and future generation. The growth and development in living standards came with incessant changes in agriculture often based on novel introductions, ethical beliefs and the end users preferences. Agricultural intensification became a matter of concern in order to support the growing population and ensuring the per capita availability of food grains. Losses due to insects and pests are often hampering the agricultural production. Insect pests are a major constraint on production of many crops worldwide. Traditional reliance on agro-chemicals from decades has led to environmental pollution, toxicity, bio-magnification and the development of resistance. Due to which several chemical pesticides, such as organochlorine and methyl bromide have been staged out. Increasing number of pesticide and fungicide resistant strains has become a matter of serious concern. The global consent to alleviate the use of chemical pesticides is gaining substantial importance in the perspective of the development of novel, benevolent, and sustainable crop protection strategies, such as the use of biopesticides.
