In Georgia, approximately 4 kg of pesticides on average are yearly applied on tilled soil, whereas various used pesticides are produced in Europe and their analogue pesticides in China, India, Turkey or Bulgaria.

From August 2010 to July 2012, the project entitled Reducing the use of hazardous chemicals in developing countries: potential of implementing safer chemicals including non-chemical alternatives - tools for Georgia and the EECCA region, was implemented by WECF and its Georgian partners. One of the core aims of the project was to invest the usage of pesticides in agriculture in Georgia, its legislative regulation and to identify and demonstrate the usage of non-hazardous bio pesticides in agriculture.
