Biological Pesticide Concept
Jun 22, 2017

Biological pesticides refer to the use of biological living organisms or their metabolites for pests, pathogens, weeds, nematodes, rodents, etc.

Pests to control the use of a class of pesticide formulations, or through the synthesis of specific biological effects of pesticide formulations. On the scope of biological pesticides, at home and abroad there is no very accurate and unified definition. In accordance with the standards of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, biological pesticides are generally natural compounds or genetic modification agents, including biochemical pesticides (pheromones, hormones, plant regulators, insect growth regulators) and microbial pesticides (fungi, bacteria, Protozoa, or genetically modified microorganisms), agricultural antibiotic preparations are not included. China's biological pesticides in accordance with its composition and sources can be divided into microbial biological pesticides, microbial metabolites pesticides, botanical pesticides, animal pesticides four parts. According to the control object can be divided into pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, acaricides, rodenticides, plant growth regulators. In terms of its use, biological pesticides are generally divided into two categories: the direct use of biological living organisms and the use of bio-active substances derived from organisms. The former includes bacteria, fungi, nematodes, viruses and antagonistic microorganisms. The latter includes agricultural antibiotics, Growth regulators, sex pheromones, feeding inhibitors, juvenile hormones and physiologically active substances derived from plants. However, in the practical application of agricultural production in China, bio-pesticides generally mainly refers to the large-scale industrial production of microbial pesticides.
