Beneficial Insects and Agriculture

Author(s): Sindhusha Pedada*

On agricultural land, there are numerous insects that are not a threat to crop production but are useful to farmers in various ways, such as natural enemies, productive insects, pollinators, scavengers, weed killers, and soil builders. In the current situation, farmers’ motivation is one-sided: they want to make the most money possible while neglecting the impact on beneficial insects, the environment, and human health. Insecticides can be an essential agricultural production tool for increasing yield, but their widespread and indiscriminate usage puts farmers at risk of significant health problems, as well as having negative implications for insects that are helpful to farmers. Fields with numerous helpful insects have a favourable impact on crop output, therefore cautious decisions about insect pest management and farmer knowledge of beneficial insects should be made.
