Argentine lab finds alternative to pesticides

Scientists develop natural insecticide to help farmers protect crops from threat of insects.

    Argentina's fertile lands make it one of the world's great food-producing nations.

    But farmers there are in a constant battle against insects with environmentalists worried about the side effects from the heavy use of pesticides.

    Now, a local laboratory may have found a solution.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from La Plata.
