Development of environment friendly pesticide by Israeli scientists

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL: The Israeli scientists have announced the development of an inexpensive environment friendly pesticide. Researchers, led by Shmuel Gan-Mor, at Israel’s Agricultural Research Organization, have stated that they have developed an emulsion, which is based on edible oil that is effective against the pests on vegetables. New pesticide costs $1 per liter, is safe for immediate harvesting and also comes with long shelf life. The multi spectral spray has the potential to work against diseases, insects, fungi and agricultural pests, like mites, sternorrhyncha, and powdery mildew. The pests are unable to develop a resistance to the mixture in the growing season.
