On the other hand, the lecturer refuses this method by pointing out that it would cause serious problems for farmers as the farmers utilize pesticides to increase their crops and keep the prices as low as their competitors. As a result, if they want to eliminate pesticides, farming would not be economical for farmers. Consequently, this method is not practical enough to be applied.

Conversely, the professor implies that this method should be applied in each frog which makes this method significantly difficult.
