Chemical warfare

Chemical warfare; agricultural warfare management using chemical compounds to keep pest populations below economic loss threshold.
Chemical warfare dates back to the 12th century BC.
Until the Second World War, it continued with inorganic compounds and some herbal products.
A chemical called DDT was used against lice in the soldiers during the Second World War. After the war, this compound was used against agricultural pests.
DDT's success has led to the development of other organic insecticides.
Chemical warfare efforts in our country also gained speed in the 1950s. In order to protect the stored cereals in the warehouses during the Second World War, studies were carried out at Bornova Plant Protection Research Institute.
