This volume covers the developments in pesticide usage, with particular emphasis on the regulations that safeguard users, consumers and the environment. It provides a comprehensive guide to the use of pesticides and the efforts of manufacturers to develop pesticides that are both effective and environmentally benign. The difficulties and hazards associated with their applications, their environmental effects, particularly in wate and the control of storage, uses and residue levels in non-agricultural habitat and in foodstuffs are also discussed.
