Effect of Insecticides and Synthetic Fertilizers on Gramineae Family
Abstract: Introduction: Gramineae family is also known as poaceae and it is the most important plant family for food production. Some of the widely cultivated grains are rice, wheat, corn, barley, rye, oats, pearl millet, finger millet and tef. It is thus the major source of food worldwide but the overuse of insecticides for managing and controlling insects and synthetic fertilizers for improving the soil fertility have had a detrimental role on the quality of this plant and have directly affected the health of human kind to a large extent. Method: The current review work summarizes and analyzes the studies done to evaluate the effect of some insecticides and chemical fertilizers on graminae family by intensive electronic search by Cochrane, PubMed and EMBASE. Some selected published works were thoroughly analyzed to understand and get insight on the above-mentioned topic. Result: The studies revealed the specific effects of specific insecticides and fertilizers on plants from this very important crop plant.
