Pesticides are one of the irreplaceable requirements in the field of agriculture . In developing countries like India, where the primary source of income is agriculture, the use of pesticides can't be actually prohibited. Pesticides help to overcome the break out of pest attacks and fulfil the population's food needs. But, the disadvantages of the use of pesticides can't be ignored too .
The availability of pesticides, although regulated, still needs to be controlled. Deaths due to pesticide intake are prevalent in developing countries. Recent studies report about 385 million cases of acute pesticide poisoning to occur annually, including 11,000 fatalities. Moreover, the highest numbers of cases are observed in south Asia, east Africa and south-east Asian parts of the world .
