The alternatives of pesticides which can be used in the agriculture are: crop rotation (alternate growing of two different crops in the same field), biological control of pets for example control of mice by owl, vermicomposting (use of earthworm), using bio-fertilizers and development of genetic resistant strains, for example Bt cotton.
