|Authors||Field, L. M.|
World food production is increasingly threatened by a range of factors, such as climate, water, other natural resources, and land availability, which can potentially limit our ability to produce food crops. Thus, it is very important that we maximize yields whenever possible and this includes protecting crops from pests, diseases, and weeds which can significantly reduce yields (European Crop Protection Agency 2015 ), often after expensive inputs in time and resource have been invested. At present, and in my view for the foreseeable future, such crop protection relies on the use of chemical pesticides, especially for “firefighting” when other control measures fail.
