Increasing consumer pressure for high quality goods, lowest possible prices, with the reduced use of pesticides, means application methods have to be even more precise. Environment protection regulations imposed by the FAO also require the precise application of toxic pesticide chemicals. This second edition of "Pesticide Application Methods" has been fully revised to provide up-to-date information on the different types of application techniques. It provides detailed information on the role of chemical control in crop protection and covers safety precautions and maintenance issues. It should be a reference for everybody working in the agrochemical and equipment manufacturing industry and workers involved in crop protection. Postgraduate courses in crop protection, such as the courses at Reading, Bristol, Wye College, and country agricultural colleges; will also provide background reading for courses in agriculture, ecology (especially with reference to pollution) and agricultural engineering.

From the Back Cover:

Pesticide Application Methods is the standard work for all those involved in crop protection. This fully revised edition provides up-to-date information on the different types of application techniques and how they should be used to ensure efficient and effective pest control.

Detailed information is provided on the role of chemical control to crop protection: targets, formulations and droplets, spray quality and the choice of nozzles are discussed, as are improvements in the design of new equipment, safety precautions and maintenance issues. Two new chapters highlight the application of biological pesticides and equipment used in the evaluation of pesticides.

This important new edition is a commercially important reference tool and will be of great use and interest to all those working in crop protection, including agricultural entomologists and plant pathologists, pesticide scientists, advisors and consultants, large-scale growers, agricultural and horticultural scientists, agrochemical industry personnel including those involved in equipment supply and product formulation. Libraries in government and commercial research establishments, universities and agricultural colleges and anywhere the subject is taught or studied should have multiple copies of this definitive book on their shelves.

Review:

Aslib Book Guide, Nov 2001:
"Of major value to those involved in crop protection in all parts of the world, as an overview and to assist in training in the safe and efficient use of agrochemicals."
