Produce More Harvest with Lesser Land
If we were in the 1800s, where the world population was just 1 billion, and there’s more land for a single person than there is today, then there would be no need to produce more from the available land. But with the steadily increasing growth rate of the world population, there’s a call to produce more harvest from the only available land. This is where pesticides become beneficial.
Lessen the Chances of Loss and Ensuring Bountiful Harvest
When it comes to farming or any type of business, the only unrecoverable cost is time. Time is very essential that if a good season is lost because of pests, or even if not maximized because of area limitation, then this wouldn’t be profitable to the farmers.
Make Vegetables and Fruits Affordable
Have you ever wondered why the cost of vegetables and fruits in the market hasn’t surged? This is because of the massive and regular harvest done using scientifically-proven pesticides. There’s also less effort to maintain a farm making it sustainable over time.
Reduce Waterborne and Insect-Transmitted Diseases
Among the examples of these diseases would be malaria, Lyme disease, and West Nile virus. By using pesticides, farmers are able to prevent disease outbreaks through the control of rodent and insect populations, thus contributing to the protection of human health.
Just like the Philippines, many farmers and farm owners are producing more and adding to the nation’s income and economy by delivering export-quality vegetables and fruits. With the use of tested-safe and government-approved pesticides, developing and agricultural countries like the Philippines are able to uplift the status of a nation and its global contribution to other countries.
