From the Back Cover
This integrated view on modern crop protection -- covering science, technology, regulation and economical issues -- contains the proceedings of the 11th IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry held in Kobe, in 2006. 50 contributions selected from this premier forum for pesticide development and use cover key aspects in modern pesticide chemistry and technology, including agriculture, agrochemicals, and environmental health aspects, as well as global issues, such as food quality and safety. This comprehensive volume even captures such emerging technologies as crop protection and production, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics.
Invaluable reading for organic, environmental and food chemists, as well as chemists in industry, agricultural scientists, and those working in the chemical industry.
