Many farmers are unaware of the role that non-pathogenic fungi, bacteria and viruses play in the natural control of pests (insects and diseases). Microbes are crucial for improving soil fertility, breaking down toxic wastes and contributing to the general health of soil and plants. Technology has made it possible for micro-organisms to be formulated as pesticides and microbial formulations are now available as wettable powders, emulsifiable concentrates, water-dispersible granules, dry-flowable powders, baits etc.
