Pesticides are used in agriculture. Farmers use pesticides to get rid of agents that may harm crops such as insects, weed and fungi. Other than this, pesticides are at times used in other activities also such as to remove shrubs and weeds from roadways as well as to combat the growth of algae in water bodies. Pesticides ensure an increase in crop yield and as such benefit farmers monetarily. Thus, a number of nations around the world regularly import pesticides. The cons of pesticides are environmental degradation, harmful effects on the health of humans, among others.
