Azadirachta indica or Calotropis procera) can help avoid pests. Biopesticides are more ecofriendly, and the extra effort that goes into their application is easily set off by the reduced cost and local availability. Sometimes no effective pesticides are available to manage certain kind of insects. For example, a mollusc affecting the young seedlings of Azadirachta indica, called Laevicaulis alte, is not susceptible to most known pesticides; however, it can be killed by spraying over with a solution of metaldehyde or common salt.

7) includes checking transparency (only for the virgin LDPE type), strength, and leakproofness. Transparency should be good and uniform and should not show streaks. If a bag is filled with soil and dropped on firm ground from waist height and does not tear, it can be said to have passed the strength test. If a bag is filled with water and hung for 2 h and no leakage of water is seen, it passes the test of being leakproof. Another desired property is that of ease of opening. The sheets should not be tightly stuck at the open ends to avoid unnecessary wastage of effort and time.
