This one–stop reference for everyone working in the agrochemical business is the leading reference in the field, with first–class authors from university and all major crop protection companies, research based in Europe, Japan, and USA. In three volumes, one each on herbicides, fungicides and insecticides, it provides up–to–date information on the chemical properties, mode of action, range of application, industrial–scale synthesis and commercial products. The new edition has been updated and expanded by more than 50 new compounds and their mechanisms, for a complete picture of agrochemicals introduced since 1990.

A truly comprehensive source of top quality information.

From a review of the previous edition:

"... It addresses the problems of the past; ... it talks of new, emerging technologies; ...it is packed in a reader–friendly fashion; and is full of good science, innovative discovery and remarkable breakthroughs. It is a book that should be compulsory reading for the doubters of the value of chemical crop protection... a book of which we should be proud."
