Carbofuran, methyl parathion, phorate, and triazophos are indeed used as pesticides in agriculture. These chemicals are used to control pests and insects that can harm crops and reduce agricultural yields. However, their use is viewed with apprehension due to their potential adverse effects on human health and the environment. Strict regulations and monitoring are necessary to ensure their safe and responsible use in agricultural practices. They are not used as preservatives in processed foods, fruit-ripening agents, or moisturizing agents in cosmetics.
