M. Page 10 CH1 BIOLOGICALS active pesticides are available based on secondary metabolites synthesized by soil actinomycetes. Spinosad, a mixture of two macrolide compounds from Saccharopolyspora spinosa, has a very low mammalian toxicity and residues degrade rapidly in the field. Farmers and growers used it widely following its introduction in 1997 but resistance has already developed in some important pests such as western flower thrips. Abamectin, a macrocyclic lactone compound produced by Streptomyces avermitilis, is active against a range of pest species but resistance has developed in tetranychid mites to it also, though they fall within the definition of a biopesticide but they have been evaluated by regulatory authorities as synthetic chemical pesticides.

In the modern industrialized agricultural process – which developing nations are moving towards in order to increase future yields – energy use in the making and application of agrochemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides represents the single biggest component. Indeed, on a global scale, fertilizer manufacturing consumes about 3–5% of the world’s annual natural gas supply. With production anticipated to increase by 25% between now and 2030, sustainable energy sourcing will become an increasingly major issue.
