An overview on the biotechnological approaches in the control of crop pests

Biotechnology with its promise to revolutionise agriculture around the world is assuming an increasingly greater role in agricultural research in India. The indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides has affected humans and their environment.  Insect pests are one of the major limiting factors in sustaining the productivity of various crops. The concept of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for sustainable development has emerged with increasing realisation of the importance of sustainable agriculture. IPM with emphasis on pest suppression aims towards sustainability and is being promoted in all the cropping systems in the country.
