Abstract:

Biopesticides have attracted attention in pest management in recent decades, and have long been promoted as prospective alternatives to synthetic pesticides. Biopesticides are natural and good alternative sources of synthetic pesticides. In India, all pesticides, including biopesticides, are regulated under the Insecticides Act, 1968, and the rules framed under it. The act regulates the import, manufacture, transport, sale, distribution, and use of pesticides with a view to prevent any risk to human beings and animals. Unlike synthetic pesticides, which can be produced in desired purity and yield, it is often difficult to produce biopesticides with constituent purity due to a wide variation in the active and associated ingredients. Due to lack of innovative advancements in research and policies in India, biopesticides production and consumption is limited when compared to synthetic chemical pesticides. This article suggests some regulatory norms and quality control parameters of biopesticides production in India.
