Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Despite a history of several decades of pesticide regulation, continuous innovation, and considerable practical experience with using pesticides in agriculture, the environmental impact of pesticide use continues to be of serious concern.

From the Back Cover

How sustainable are current pest management practices that rely heavily on the use of pesticide products? This important book looks in depth at the question of why the environmental impact of pesticides continues to be of serious concern (the persistence of the pesticide problem) as well as identifying and critically assessing various improvements and alternative strategies to circumvent the current problems of agricultural pesticide use.

Contents of this thought-provoking book include details of the authorisation of pesticides and regulatory science, innovation in the agrochemical industry, the use of agrochemicals by farmers, variations in agricultural practice, the effect of pesticides on the environment, integrated assessment, site-specific pest management, the use of biotechnology, food industry initiatives, international policies and organic farming.

The editors have drawn together an impressive list of contributing authors in a well integrated and carefully edited book that is an essential purchase for anyone working in the areas of crop protection and agrochemicals, in academia, research, policy making, government or industry. Agricultural scientists, applied entomologists, biochemists, crop protection specialists and environmental scientists will find a huge wealth of important information within the covers of this book. Libraries in universities where agricultural sciences, crop protection, plant sciences, biological and environmental sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.
