A pest is an organism that eats or damages crop plants that are grown in agriculture.

Pests can be controlled using pesticides or by introducing other species, also known as biological control.

Pesticides are natural or synthetic chemicals that are sprayed on crops. They include; Insecticides that control insects, Fungicides that control fungi and herbicides that control weeds – other plants that are not supposed to grow with the crop.
