Comparative potential of a new synergistic bio-pesticide and synthetic pesticide on pest control and crop yield

A new, cost effective and green synergistic bio-pesticide has been development from neem oil and white oil using NIFA developed adjuvant in 35:60:05 ratios respectively. The newly developed bio-pesticide synergist is an organic product and was found the most potent and green pesticide than synthetic pesticide. Our newly developed synergistic bio-pesticide showed good results than synthetic bifenthrin in controlling the pest population and resulted in improved crop yield. Furthermore, the product was found fungi-static as no fungal attack was observed during synergistic treatments, while both of the control and synthetic bifenthrin plots were attacked by Alternaria Solani, causing early blight disease. This synergistic bio-pesticide has been proved as a safe pest controlling agents since it is non-toxic and biodegradable. Due to safe ingredients, it is claimed to be an excellent candidate to produce export quality agro-products by control of MRL (EU). This product may serve as effective biological pesticide in organic farming
