Pesticides include herbicides for destroying weeds and other unwanted vegetation, insecticides for controlling a wide variety of insects, fungicides used to prevent the growth of molds and mildew, disinfectants for preventing the spread of bacteria, and compounds used to control mice and rats.
Without the use of pesticides, more than half of the crops would be lost to pests and diseases. Almost 40 percent of the world’s potential crop production is lost annually because of weeds, pests and diseases. Without crop protection, these losses could easily double.
Crop quantity and quality rely on crop protection and pesticides enable farmers to produce safe, quality foods at affordable prices. They also help farmers provide an abundance of nutritious, all-year-round foods.
