Sirsi LEADer Promotes Organic Pesticides to Promote Livelihoods and Health

Posted on Sunday, October 13, 2013 by LEAD

Pests pose a serious threat to agriculture.  A way to combat these pests is through using pesticides, but consuming agricultural products treated with chemical-based pesticides can be harmful for health.  With the aim to help farmers yield more crops to increase their income and to take care of the health of consumers, LEADer Raghav Hegde of MES College of Commerce, Sirsi, supplied 10 farmers with organic pesticides and trained the farmers how to apply these pesticides.  Now, these farmers are protecting their livelihoods, as well as the health of their consumers.
