Biopesticides provide growers with valuable tools on both fronts by delivering solutions that are highly effective in managing pests, without creating negative impacts on the environment. Overall, biocontrols have very limited toxicity to birds, fish, bees and other wildlife. They help to maintain beneficial insect populations, break down quickly in the environment, and may serve to reduce conventional pesticide applications through their effective use in resistance management programs.
Growers cannot overstate the importance being good stewards of the land. More and more, environmental stewardship and Best Management Practices are at the forefront of commercial farming operations. Indeed, the art of being a top grower depends on maximizing return on investment while at the same time being a responsible steward of the land, land that future generations will depend on for their livelihood.
