Agrochemicals are used in farming to make crops grow more quickly and to kill insects and weeds. Agrochemicals are responsible for killing farmers, fish, helpful insects, plants, birds, and animals that are exposed to the poisons in these chemicals. Soil that is exposed to agrochemicals also becomes unhealthy. When you eat plants that have been sprayed with agrochemicals, you also eat the agrochemicals.
