The Name EF-Healing-Pesticide is an ecological friendly (EF) pesticide which has healing properties. EF-Healing-Pesticide is a product meant for agricultural and plantation fields.
The main advantages of EF-Healing-Pesticide are two folds. First, it overcomes toxicity to humans and pollution problem found in existing pesticides. Thus, this product has no pesticide disposal problem. Second, its residues on food display some healing properties.
How EF-Healing-Pesticide is produced by an IP protected formula. The main ingredient of EF-Healing-Pesticide is the leaves of a tropical tree (X). It consists of the natural chemical compounds that kill certain pests but at the same time has the healing properties for human. It is an on target species type of pesticide. It can be produced in bulk at low cost due to the abundance of X and the reasonably simple production formula.
Advantages EF-Healing-Pesticide changes the concept of pesticide. EF-Healing-Pesticide incorporates the "healing" element in "pesticide". This sounds contradictory, but that is the breakthrough! Pesticides differ according to their effects on various organisms. EF-Healing-Pesticide is a selective pesticide that is toxic only to the target pests but causes no harm to human.
To be healthy, we need to eat a variety of foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. Pesticides play an important role in making sure there is enough food for everyone, by protecting food and crops from pests. While pesticides help protect our food supply, many people are concerned about pesticides in the food they eat. Increased attention has been focused on chemical residues of the pesticides. It has caused some people to ask: "are our food supplies safe?"
EF-Healing-Pesticide offers a solution to the problem. The profile of EF-Healing-Pesticide shows that it consists of the natural chemical compounds that have been proven to have healing function for human. It can be used to keep food safe and can play an important role in improving good agricultural and pest management practices. Food is essential for life. A lot of people in the world are concerned with getting enough food.
A study in the United Sates shows that without pesticides, food would be reduced in a range of 15 to 80 percent depending on the crop and the pest causing the damage. When the concern is not on quantity but of quality, organically grown food has been the alternative. However, organically grown food generally has lower yields and is relatively more expensive.
EF-Healing-Pesticide can be one of the solutions to improve crop yields and food supply without increasing the price much. Pesticides can be travel great distances through the environment. When sprayed on crops, pesticides can be blown by the wind to other areas. They can also flow with rain water into nearby streams or can seep through the soil into ground water. Some pesticides can remain in the environment for many years and pass from one organism to another.
EH-Healing-Pesticide does not have this problem as its compositions are all environmental friendly. Commercialization EF-Healing-Pesticide has high commercialization potential as agriculture and plantation remain as important sectors in the economy of any nations.
