?Today we want to talk to you about biopesticides, natural substances to control plagues and diseases of crops. Compared with chemical synthesis products, they present very notable advantages:
➡️ They have lower toxicity.
➡️ They induce resistance due to their multiple mode of action.
➡️ They don’t generate residues in food.
➡️ They don’t require setting maximum residue limits or safety periods for cultivation.
➡️ They also act as biostimulants for the plant.
If today we are talking about a boom in biopesticides, it’s because these advantages provide enormous value in the current social and legislative framework in which the use of sustainable solutions is favored. Biopesticides also contribute to achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal and it’s no coincidence that their use is increasing among farmers around the world.
