My experience in the field of agriculuture for the usage of confidor had been good initially. Confidor really have a good control on sucking pests, mainly BPH and Aphids in field crops as well as in garden plants. But after usage o f this pesticide for certain period pests developed resistance against the pesticide and now it's practically impossible to control the sucking pests even at double dose of the pesticide.Moreover, i have the experience that many useful insects are also been destroyed in the pursuit of controlling the pests by the farmers. Hence it is environmentally hazardous too. So, there is an urgent need of an alternative molecule in place of Confidor which is environment friendly and harmless to usefull insects at the same time the sucking pests may not be able to develope resistance to that molecule quickly.
Farmers from across the world say that they dislike using pesticides but yeild is more important and hence acceptance of these products too is on rise.
