Environment Friendly Pest Management
By Dr. Abdul Rauf
Repeated application re-application of toxic organophosphates, carbamates and chlorinated hydrocarbons is affecting the environment. Indiscriminate pesticide use has polluted air, water and soil and it is still continue in many forms. It is causing may problems like disrupting the food chain, loss of biodiversity and upsetting the delicate balance of nature. A small fraction of pesticide can be hazardous to human beings. Chronic exposure has been linked to birth defects, genetic changes, cancer, nervous system disorders, skin and eye irritation and nausea etc. Insect pests develop resistance due to prolonged use of toxic pesticides. The resistance may be genetic due to mutation and may pass down to their offspring. These chemicals have adverse effects on the grasses, bushes and other plants. They accumulate in soil due to the continuous use and effects the fertility of the soil.

He does not carry the spray pump inside the red zone.
