Pesticide chemistry has seen many remarkable changes
and advances in recent years. Further challenges must be faced to progress
the subject and this book, produced as a result of the 9th
IUPAC Congress of Pesticide Chemistry and written by leading international
experts, reports on the need to produce high quality food whilst satisfying
environmental concerns. Including new material on Natural Products,
Mode of Action and Metabolism, Pesticide Chemistry and Biosciences updates
all the key areas in pesticide chemistry and related activities. Together,
the contents outline the revolution in the approaches to crop protection
and our abilities to develop complex, environmentally acceptable strategies
for weed, pest and disease control.
This collection of current expert views and findings will
be of immense interest to researchers and professionals working in the
environment of pesticide chemistry.
