Increased Practice Of Organic Farming

Growing consumer demand for opting for organic food instead of conventional food, to avoid adverse health effects caused by chemical preservatives is shifting growers towards organic cultivation that uses bio-pesticides instead of chemicals. Increased concern about the environment has paved the way for the use of bio-based pesticides. 

Increasing the cost of chemical fertilizers and push from governments for sustainable farming is enabling the farmers to adopt organic farming practices. After the initiatives by the regulatory system, the biopesticide usage number has been increased. In Europe, growers are being encouraged to grow fresh fruits and vegetables through the usage of chemical-free pesticides. Thus increasing organic farming practice is driving the growth of the biopesticide market.
