tell me the difference between pesticides and weedicides
the difference between the pesticides and weedicides is that pesticides are mainly used in killing insects and rats so specialy insecticides and rodenticides are called pesticides while,weedicides are those who remove plants which are unecesary and not good for the growth of the original plant .
- Pesticides are chemicals sprayed on the main crop which are used to keep rodents and pests like aphids, locusts, grasshoppers etc., from the main crop. some examples of pesticides are malathion, chlorophyrigas and DDC.
- Whereas weedicides are chemicals which are sprayed in the fields to remove unwanted plants called weeds.they do not harm the main crop as they are diluted before spraying so that it does not cause harm to the main crop
