While the prevalence of chemical or synthetic pesticides in crop protection would continue, human, animal and environmental health concerns are likely to play key roles in driving the growth for biopesticides. Emerging economies in Asia-Pacific and Latin America are likely take the lead in adoption of both synthetic pesticides and biopesticides.
