Agricultural chemical firms have made investments in the discovery and development of biological pesticides as a complement to synthetic pesticides for the control of insects, diseases, and weeds on agronomic and horticultural crops. The use of biologicals is essential for the sustainable agriculture of the future since they not only protect beneficial insects but also stimulate them to defend crops. Biopesticides, biofertilizers, and biostimulants fall under the category of “biologics,” which are agricultural products made from natural sources including bacteria, plants, animals, or minerals. Biologicals will mostly replace chemical fertilizers and crop protection goods, which combined account for a market worth over $240 billion. Dr. Gustavo Sosa, founder and CEO of INBIOAR, views biologicals as a tool to replace synthetic chemicals. He believes that he still has a lot of work to do to prove that biologicals are similar to synthetics while still being environmentally friendly.
