Biocontrol: An effective tool for agricultural insect pests management

Akhil Upadhyay, JC Hadiya and SK Gharde
Integrated pest control systems of insect pests used worldwide; the manipulation of important species is still a significant appliance. This review summaries the effectiveness, benefits, and protection of the use of biological agents to inhibit and control insect damage caused to crops. In general, biocontrol has been shown to be effective for plants, livestock, humans, and the ecosystem. This is in stark contrast to chemical insecticides that are more commonly used, often resulting in environmental contamination that causes damage to people and the environment. Biocontrol manufacturers continue to expand new conventions for surveying operator protection, sending and estimating the achievement of treatment. Guidelines are established by government and assembly organizations to ensure the protected and correct use of biocontrol. The benefits of organic control frameworks drive the growing option of technology. Biodiversity assurance and a high-cost share advantage are clear reasons for advancing the use of biocontrol phases. This review will help the researchers for the selection of suitable biocontrol agents for different pests and crops at various stages.
