Concerns about the health risks of tobacco have reduced demand and hurt
tobacco farmers in some parts of the world. Scientists are looking for new
uses for tobacco. One potential use is as a natural pesticide, due to
tobacco’s content of toxic nicotine. For centuries, gardeners have used
home-made mixtures of tobacco and water as a natural pesticide to kill
insect pests. A “green” pesticide industry based on tobacco could provide
additional income for farmers, and as well as a new eco-friendly
pest-control agent, the scientists say.
