Abstract:

Agriculture plays an important role in the economy of India. Insect infestation causes drastic level of loss to the agricultural crop production. This is challenging task to meet the requirements of the increasing human population in India and other developing nations, Indian agricultural system needs a sustainable agricultural produce for future needs of future generation. This article highlights the present scenario of Entomopathogens in Agriculture sector. Synthetic Chemical Pesticides are commonly used to control insect pest which causes hazardous impact on our environment and non-tare gated beneficial organism’s system including human being. Entomopathogens as a biopesticides are natural, sustainable, cost effective and good alternative source to replace those dangerous chemical pesticides. At present time few entomopathogenic formulations are available at market, which are insufficient to meet the demand of farmers due to lack of innovative advancements in research and policies in India. Production and consumption of entomopathogens are limited as compared to synthetic chemical pesticides. This article suggests enhancing technology oriented research and boosting entomopathogenic biopesticides formulations for increasing agricultural production in an eco-friendly manner.
