Abstract

Newer and more stringent pesticide registration procedures are affecting the number of chemical tools available to farmers. Natural product-based pesticides, along with novel chemistry, are being developed to replace the compounds lost due to the new registration requirements. This entry highlights the historical use of natural products in agricultural practices and the impact of natural products on the development of new pesticides.
