Bio pesticides, a contraction of 'biological pesticides', include several types of pest management intervention: through predatory, parasitic, or chemical relationships. The term has been associated historically with biological control - and by implication - the manipulation of living organisms. Bio pesticides are biological or biologically-derived agents that are usually applied in a manner similar to chemical pesticides, but achieve pest management in an environmentally friendly way. A major growth area for bio pesticides is in the area of seed treatments and soil amendments. Fungicidal and bio fungicidal seed treatments are used to control soil borne fungal pathogens that cause seed rots, damping-off, root rot and seedling blights.

Bio pesticides are biochemical pesticides that are naturally occurring substances that control pests by nontoxic mechanisms. The most commonly used bio pesticides are living organisms, which are pathogenic for the pest of interest. There are mainly three categories in Biopesticides: microbial pesticides, bio chemical pesticides, plant incorporated protectants.

Advantages of bio pesticides are –

1)     No harmful residues detected

2)     Can be cheaper than chemical pesticides when locally produced.

3)     Can be more effective than chemical pesticides in the long-term

4)     Biodegradable


Disadvantages are-

1)     High specificity

2)     Often slow speed of action

3)     Living organisms evolve and increase their resistance to biological, chemical, physical or any other form of control.


The Bio pesticide segment occupies a small portion of the large pesticide market in India. Consumption of bio pesticides in India is projected to reach 31 thousand tons by 2010 to reflect a CAGR of 18.3% over 2014-2020. The Indian biopesticides market has showcased remarkable traction over the past few years in the industry of agro-chemicals in India. The bio-pesticides market has been significantly projected to grow in the next five years.

Demand for biopesticides in India is forecast to exhibit high growth in terms of both volume and value, estimated at respective compounded annual rates of 18.3% and 19% over the 2014-2020 period.
