The correct option is (a) True

To explain I would say: Pesticides in general are used to protect the food stored in the storage tanks from insects, beetles, moths, larvae etc. which destroy the food completely. So, it is very important to use Insecticide and fungicides to protect the stored food. Also, for the disinfection of the mills and other sites of the storage areas.
