Description

There continues to be massive media coverage and public concern over the use of pesticides, the possible negative impacts on human health either by contact with residues in the environment or on our food, the impact on wildlife and the effects of long-term agrochemical use on the environment. Safety with Pesticides examines how crop protection was achieved before pesticides were in use, how pesticides are registered for use now, pesticide application and the concerns over operator safety, and what happens to pesticides in food and the environment. Also included is an important chapter covering the future of pesticides in light of the growing use of crops which have been genetically modified to resist disease and attack by pests. Written by Professor Graham Matthews, one the world's foremost authorities on pesticides, Safety with Pesticides is an essential purchase for all those dealing with pesticides whether in research, registration, formulation, application or sales.
