Consumption, health impact and detection of pesticides: A mini-review

  • Rajat Singh Uttaranchal University
Keywords: detection of pesticides, pests management, pesticides consumption

Abstract

World population increasing rapidly therefore it is a major concern to provide food to the ever-increasing population. The pest and diseases drastically affect the growth of agricultural commodities, more than 30% of world food is destroyed due to pest’s infestation. One of the most effective methods to meet the world food requirement is pest’s management which is done by using various pesticides. But due to the excessive use of pesticides in agriculture, the residues of pesticides are appearing in our daily diets and causing several ill effects to humans. In the world, China was the leading consumer of pesticides followed by the USA and Brazil. India was also ranked highest in the imports and exports of agrochemical in the world. The aim of this study is to provides the nation and worldwide scenario of pesticides consumption, its impact on human health and also, we discussed the methodologies used for the detection of pesticide
