[Ambassador report] Review on Risk Assessment of Pesticidal Toxicity and Threats on Pollinators

by Kushal Naharki | 01-01-2021 11:40 Comments 7 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations

Use of pesticides have created serious impacts on agriculture and environment. Pesticides have resulted in to threats on pollinators as well which are an important part of our ecosystem. I have written an article on pesticidal toxicity and threats on pollinators. My review article on the topic “Risk Assessment of Pesticidal Toxicity and Threats on Pollinators: A Review on Honey Bee” has been published on Turkish Journal of Agriculture-Food Science and Technology.


Abstract: Pollinators play vital roles to the environment, biodiversity conservation, food security and several dimensions of global sustainable development. Honey bee is an important pollinator globally but has been exposed to increasing threats from diseases, pesticides and biotic stresses. This review paper highlights the role of honey bees as pollinators, addresses threats which influence decline of honey bees and assess pesticidal risk toxicity on non-target organisms. Decline of honey bee population is caused by several factors including habitat fragmentation, pesticidal toxicity, colony collapse disorder and climate change. Pesticidal residue and toxicity has an adverse effect which results in honey bee population decline, disturb foraging and contamination of bee products. Residues of agricultural pesticides like pyrethroid and neonicotinoid pose a serious threat on honey bee health further reducing agricultural production and diversity. Pesticidal risk assessments are carried out to study effects of pesticides on pollinators with an aim to provide measures to safeguard their abundance, diversity and health. Sustainable agriculture, effective policy and proper management can decrease pollinators' risk by helping to diversify the agriculture for pollen and nectars with reduced usage of pesticides and proper management.

    Hello Kushal!
    It's your SJ mentor.

    I hope you doing well.
    Thank you for introducing the effects of pesticides on pollinators.
    Congratulations publishing your review paper!
    I am worried that the number of bees is decreasing due to pesticides or electromagnetic waves.
    Radio waves emitted from cell phones are said to be bad for bees.
    It is hoped that not only the effects of pesticides but also the ways to reduce the effects of electromagnetic waves will be studied.
    Happy New year!

    Best regards,
    SJ mentor.

    Hello Kushal,
    this is your mentor WooJoo.

    Warm greetings from South Korea.
    Thank you for sharing your review with us, regarding the pesticidal toxicity.
    Use of pesticides, climate changes are all reasons for irregularity and imbalance of the ecosystem.
    I agree that in the past, thanks to its use we were able to supply food to the growing population, but now I think that we have yet developed many agricultural technologies that can replace its use.
    Honey bees are important pollinators, as well as others, and if they disappear, the ecosystem would be destroyed.
    I am curious about how we could improve the situations.

    Happy New Year!

    Your review article looks awesome. Pesticidal Toxicity has created a great havoc. We must limit its use to great extent. Keep Writing.
