Essential Oil Applications|

At present, organic crops have reached an important boom in a society increasingly
interested in the conservation of the environment and sustainability. It is evident that a part of the
population in the Western world focuses their concern on how to obtain our food and on doing it in a
way that is as respectful as possible with the environment. In this review, we present a compilation
of the work carried out with the use of essential oils as an alternative in the fight against different
bacteria and fungi that attack crops and related products. Given the collected works, the efficacy of
essential oils for their use as pesticides for agricultural use is evident.
