Pesticides covers the latest developments in pesticide usage, with particular emphasis on the regulations that safeguard users, consumers and the environment. It provides a comprehensive guide to the whole "story" of the pesticide business, from the efforts of manufacturers to produce products that are both effective and environmentally benign; the difficulties and hazards associated with the application of these substances; their environmental effects, particularly in water; and the control of storage, use and residue levels in non-agricultural habitat and in foodstuffs. It covers the use of chemicals in fish farming and weed control, and methods of detection of pesticide residues in ground water, rivers and the North Sea. To do so it draws on a wide range of expertise and experience, with contributors active at the various stages, demonstrating the value of good science in presenting relevant and reliable data on environmental impacts. Pesticides explodes many of the myths about pesticides, and draws attention to less familiar problems and the means of addressing them. Thorough and up-to-date, it is core reading for undergraduates in environmental and agricultural science courses, researchers working with pesticides, and legislators and officials with health and safety responsibilities.
