Insecticides play a very important role in increasing production by protecting crops from destructive insect pests. But indiscriminate use of conventional and broad spectrum insecticides, leads to development of resistance, resurgence and environmental pollution. Therefore, it is necessary to select new, safe and less persistent products for ecofriendly and sustainable pest management. Benzophenyl urea based insecticides fit well in this aspect. These are basically inhibitors of the chitin synthesis in insects which make them strong candidate for the integrated pest management.† Extensive research has been carried out on different aspects to assess the potentiality and environment friendliness of this group of insecticides. Thus, the aim of this review is to gather comprehensive information about benzophenyl urea insecticide related to its development, mode of action, bio-efficacy, environmental fate and eco-toxicity, which may be helpful for the researchers for future endeavour.¬† ¬†¬†
