Pyridazine derivatives are an important heterocyclic family in medication development. Because of their biological relevance, there has been a surge in interest in the chemistry of pyridazine derivatives in recent years. Anti-tubercular, antifungal, antibacterial, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, anticancer, antidiabetic, anti-AIDS, cardiovascular activity, anticonvulsant, and possibly useful neuroprotective actions have all been identified for pyridazine derivatives. They have also pesticide and herbicide action. The purpose of this study is to highlight the numerous pyridazine analogs as well as their pharmacological and agricultural implications.

Keywords: Heterocyclic, agriculture, biological activities, pyridazine, antibacterial, anti-tubercular.
