The leading reference on this topic has just got better. Building on the success of the previous two editions, all the chapters have been updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, and new chapters have been added on picolinic acids, oxathiapiprolin, flupyradifurone, and other topics.

This third edition presents the most important substance classes of modern agrochemicals, with one volume each for herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. The international team of first–class authors from such renowned crop science companies as Bayer, Dow, Syngenta, and BASF, address all crucial aspects from the general chemistry and the mode of action to industrial–scale synthesis, as well as from the development of products and formulations to their application in the field.

A comprehensive and invaluable source of timely information for all of those working in modern biology, including genetics, biochemistry and chemistry, and for those in modern crop protection science, whether governmental authorities, researchers in agrochemical companies, scientists at universities, conservationists, or managers in organizations and companies involved in improvements to agricultural production.
