Many chemical companies are offering bio pesticides to control pests, insects and weeds in farmlands. Biological organisms are often called antagonists. They include predators, parasitoids and pathogens. Farmers are using it as an alternative to control pests as they do not cause damage to the crop or plant. Biopesticides are becoming increasingly popular and are safer than traditional chemical pesticides.
