Modern farming practises heavily rely on the extensive application of chemical pesticides, which have been associated with adverse effects on human health and the environment. The usage of chemical agro inputs has expanded in Indian agriculture since the Green Revolution was announced. A pesticide is a substance that repels, disables, or kills pests. It can be chemical or biological, such as a virus, bacteria, antimicrobial, or disinfectant. It is widely used to get rid of or manage a variety of agricultural pests that can hurt animals and crops and lower farm output [1].
