  • Pesticides are chemicals sprayed on the main crop which are used to keep rodents and pests like aphids, locusts, grasshoppers etc., from the main crop. some examples of pesticides are malathion, chlorophyrigas and DDC.
  • Whereas weedicides are chemicals which are sprayed in the fields to remove unwanted plants called weeds.they do not harm the main crop as they are diluted before spraying so that it does not cause harm to the main crop
