About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Environmental Hazards due pesticides


Our proposed product is a bio-pesticide which is quite different from chemical pesticides. Moreover, the product shall be prepared from a weed of no economic value. Secondly, the raw material can be cultivated at bare and non-cultivable lands with very less irrigation water. Thirdly, the product will be cheaper than the existing pesticides and bio-pesticides. Our product can mimic the activity of both pesticide and insecticide therefore it is a one for all type of product. So, a farmer buys one product but gets the benefit of two different products at the same time therefore our product will fetch the market very soon. 16.
