Pesticides Market: India, China and Japan Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2009 - 2016

In simple terms, pesticides are substances that are meant for destroying, attracting, or mitigating any pest. They are effective forms of chemicals that control and eliminate the growth of the insects, fungi, herbs, and other organisms that are harmful for crop cultivation, resulting in reduced crop yield per hectare.

According to The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pesticide is an element derived from natural materials such as plants, animals, bacteria, and certain other minerals. The term pesticide is often treated as a synonymous to plant protection products, although in a broader perspective it is used for non-agricultural purposes also. There are many microorganisms such as virus, bacteria, fungus, or microscopic nematode worms that are used in various agricultural practices in order to control or completely destroy the pests that inflict the growth of the plants.
