29 Apr | Fact check: Cotton’s Share of Worldwide Pesticide Use

Cotton is not the largest user of agricultural pesticides – it’s actually one of the lowest, accounting for less than 5 percent of the world’s total pesticide sales, despite some erroneous claims. Without the use of pesticides, farmers would not be able to provide a nutritional, plentiful, and affordable food supply for a rapidly growing global population. In fact, it’s estimated that over 80 percent of the global cotton crop could be lost to insects, fungi, and weeds without them.
