In a world where environmental concerns are increasing, Pesticide Remediation in Soils and Water is a timely and comprehensive review of all methods of remediation of land and water contaminated by pesticides. It includes contributions from industrial, government and academic experts, and covers all the main methods for reducing the concentration of pesticide waste, including incineration and destruction by microorganisms (bioremediation). New remediation methods are also discussed in a separate chapter and there are further chapters on pesticide production and generation of pesticide waste, focusing on the prevention of spills and accidental contamination. A final chapter on regulation is authored by two members of the US Environmental Agency. This is a first class book, written by experts, yet of interest to anyone involved in the production, use and clean–up of pesticides. Pesticide Remediation in Soils and Water is the second volume in the Wiley Series in Agrochemicals and Plant Protection. This series brings together current scientific and regulatory knowledge and perspectives on all aspects of the use of chemicals and biotechnology in agriculture.
