Organic Agriculture & Pesticides

Pesticides are the only toxic substances released intentionally into our environment to kill living things. This includes substances that kill weeds (herbicides), insects (insecticides), fungus (fungicides), rodents (rodenticides), and others. 

The use of toxic pesticides to manage pest problems has become a common practice around the world. Pesticides are used almost everywhere - not only in agricultural fields, but also in homes, parks, schools, buildings, forests, and roads, although they have a severe impact on our health as well as on our environment.
