Introduction Population of the globe is increasing and creating pressure on farmers for producing more food. Intensive farming has become an immediate option for feeding the increasing population. Agricultural farmers in Nepal are highly dependent on chemical pesticides to protect their crops from diseases and insects. Furthermore, farmers use chemical pesticides to improve the storage of their grains. Therefore, use of toxic pesticides in Nepal has been increasing rapidly and expected to increase further in future. This will destroy the balance between different ecosystems of nature and result different problems such as insurgence of pests, environmental pollution as well as food safety and security. This will directly affect human health and biodiversity. Such consequences will be exacerbated by poor agricultural practices of Nepalese rural farmers.
