)-- The microbial pesticides (i.e., products that contain a microorganism, such as a bacterium or fungus as the active ingredient) and the biochemical pesticides, (i.e., products that contain naturally occurring substances, such as insect sex pheromones, certain plant extracts, and fatty acids) provide crop protection without any harmful residues. Biopesticidal products provide viable alternatives in situations where conventional chemical pesticides and genetically modified crops are subject to regulatory restrictions driving the market growth. Biopesticides comply with market-imposed requirements for pest management programs by food processors and retailers for organic food. Furthermore, biopesticides are environment-friendly and meet stringent organic farming requirements driving the market growth. Biopesticides are exempted from Maximum Residue Limit (MRL) that are applicable to synthetic pesticides and are expected to to encourage the development of insect, fungal, and bacterial resistance.
