    Biological pest control agents are naturally occurring or genetically modified agents that are distinguished from conventional chemical pesticides by their unique modes of action, low use volume, and target species specificity. These guidelines include information on biochemical and microbial pest control agents and their data requirements.

    The guidelines have been brought in line with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), and where the GHS allows for (national) interpretation of its provisions, these guidelines provide specific options relevant to pesticide labelling. These guidelines identify the main objectives and considerations in preparing a label and provide guidance for the layout and required information to be presented. Technical Guidelines are issued to elaborate specific articles of the FAO & WHO International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management (the Code) and related technical aspects of pesticide management. These guidelines are developed by the FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM) This present, revised, version of the Guidelines on Good Labelling Practice for Pesticides targets pesticide regulatory authorities, primarily in developing countries and countries with economies in transition, which have to define or revise national pesticide labelling requirements. The guidelines aim also to assist pesticide registration authorities in reviewing the design and contents of (draft) pesticide labels. Other stakeholders, such as pesticide industry and civil society groups, may also find the guidelines useful for writing or evaluating pesticide labels.

    How to buffer impacts of climate variability and dry spells in home gardens by using botanical pesticides and liquid compost, Cambodia 2017

    Chemical insecticides are usually used to fight pests and save the crops from damage. However, chemical pesticides are harmful to farmers’ health and to the environment. An alternative to chemical insecticides is botanical insecticides, which are made from plants and are useful against insect pests without harming the environment or having side effects on famers’ health. This practice, in preparing botanical insecticides, allows farmers to sustainably minimize insect damage to crops, especially during more frequent and severe outbreaks that are expected to happen as a result of climate change and increased climate variabilities. Additionally, this practice describes how to prepare composts for soil enrichment, thereby improving yield and productions of fruit trees and vegetables, and also help to reduce the input cost of chemical fertilizer
