There are estimated to be used 3,5 billion tonnes of pesticides in the year 2020. While pesticides are useful for crop volume, it has significant drawbacks and consequences for the environment in the form of health hazards, pollution and affecting the ecosystem. More and more pesticides are being banned, and farmers need a viable solution for treating their fields.
