An Insecticide is a natural or man-made preparation that is used to kill or otherwise control insects. Widely used in agricultural, insecticides are also commonly applied in the homes and workspaces of humans. Insecticides are classified as either organic or inorganic.
An organic insecticide is derived from a living organism, such as a plant or an animal. Organic indecticides are thought to be environmentally sound, causing no harm to the earth, humans, or animals. They often consist of such things as fatty acids and plant oils.
Inorganic insecticides are often derived from heavy metals and arsenic - containing compounds. Some versions are man-made or synthetic. Inorganic or synthetic formulas typically offer good residual activity.
Synthetic insecticides are toxic, having the ability to cause harm to a variety of living organisms. Opponents of inorganic and synthetic insecticides believe their continued use will lead to grave environmental consequences, while proponents believe risk to the environment is negligible.
Insecticides are sold in the form of sprays, dusts, lacquers, gels, baits, smokes, fumigants and powders. When purchasing an insecticides, it is important to carefully read the label and use it only as directed. Most insecticides have very specific instructions, intended to limit risk to both the user and the environment.

Fungicides are extensively used in industry, agriculture and the home and garden for a number of purposes, including: protection of seed grain during storage, shipment, and germination; protection of nature crops, berries, seedlings, flowers and grasses in the field, in storage and during shipment; suppression of mildews that attack painted surfaces; control of slime in paper pulps; and protection of carpet and fabrics in the home.
Fungicides vary enormously in their potential for causing adverse effects in humans. Historically, some of the most tragic epidemics of pesticide poisoning occurred because of mistaken consumption of seed grain treated with organic mercury or hexachlorobenzene. However, most fungicides currently in use are unlikely to cause frequent or severe systemic poisonings for several reasons. First, many have low inherent toxicity in mammals and are inefficiently absorbed. Second, Many fungicides are formulated as suspensions of wettable powders or granules, from which rapid, efficient absorption is unlikely. And third, methods of application are such that relatively few individuals are intensively exposed. Apart from systemic poisonings, fungicides as a class are probably responsible for a disproportionate number of irritant injuries to skin and mucous membrances, as well as dermal sensitization.

Fertilizers (British English fertilisers) are compounds given to plants to promote growth; they are usually applied either via the soil, for uptake by plant roots, or by foliar feeding, foruptake through leaves. Fertilizers can be organic (composed of organic matter, i.e. carbon based), or inorganic (containing simple, inorganic chemicals). They can be naturally-occurring compounds such as peat or mineral deposits, or manufactured through natural processes (such as composting) or chemical processes (such as the Haber process).
Fertilizers typically provide, in varying proportions, the tree major plant nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium), the secondary plant nutrients (calcium, sulfur, magnesium) and sometimes trace elements (or micronutrients) with a role in plant nutrition: boron, chlorine, manganese, iron, zinc, copper and molybdenum.

Herbicides usually used for killing weeds and unwanted plants, herbicides are widelv used around the word in gardening and agriculture. An herbicide is a substance used to kill plants, tlsucnry unwanted weeds. There are two types of herbicides:
• Species specific. These herbicides kill specific plant species, leaving other species unharmed.
• Non-specific. These Herbicides kill any plant they come in contact with.
Most commercially-available herbicides are chemically produced. Manv herbicides have short half-lives, and dissipate quickly. Many others have very long h; continue in the soil for generations. Unrestricted use of certain herbicides is suspected to b pollution in rivers, streams and lakes.
