Abstract

Organic agriculture is a unique production management system which promotes and enhances agro-ecosystem health including biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity, and this is accomplished by using on-farm agronomic, biological and mechanical methods in exclusion of all synthetic off-farm inputs. Biopesticide is defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a pesticide derived from natural materials. Bio pesticides also known as biological pesticides are pesticides derived from natural materials as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals. Bio pesticides are less toxic and also reduce the pollution problems caused by conventional pesticides.
