Agrochemicals and its Effect on Human Life

Author(s): Boris Durdevic

Pesticides, herbicides, and manures are examples of agrochemicals that are used to manage the environment in farming areas. Simple small deviations from agrochemicals have been used for generations to improve crop yields and manage rural pest populations. The first known use of agrochemicals dates back to around 2500 B.C., when Sumerian ranchers relied on Sulfur (S) combinations to reduce insect populations and the risk of vermin-related hunger. Pesticide cycles have been endlessly further improved as a result of advances in modified material production to meet the massively growing global population and the resulting increases in food demands. Even with the effective use of pesticides, it is estimated that up to 40% of the world's yields are lost by plant irritations and illnesses
