Pesticide Technology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Controlled-Release Delivery Systems for Pesticides

edited by Herbert B. Scher

This useful reference comprehensively covers the latest advances in pesticide delivery technologies—highlighting new means of reducing toxicity, increasing efficacy, lessening environmental impact, and facilitating new product development.

Evaluates cutting-edge pesticide formulations and their use in mixtures that reduce physical incompatibilities in spray tanks and biological antagonism in the field!

Reflecting the different perspectives of industry, academia, and government toward new pesticide biotechnologies, Controlled-Release Delivery Systems for Pesticides

  • illustrates ways of reducing evaporation, leaching, ultraviolet light degradation, and soil degradation
  • describes the major delivery systems and their constituent raw materials
  • details microcapsules (capsules at 1–100 microns), microparticles (matrix particles at 1–100 microns), granules (matrix particles at 0.2–2.0 mm), and macrodevices (laminates, sheeting, tubes, and films)
  • discusses controlled release in terms of pesticide selectivity, allowing the use of active ingredients that are prohibitively phytotoxic in other release systems
  • explains process steps, release mechanisms, methods of release rate control, and formulation types
  • investigates performance characteristics of microbial pesticides
  • and more!
Including over 700 references, tables, and illustrations, Controlled-Release Delivery Systems for Pesticides is an invaluable resource for agricultural engineers, pesticide product development researchers, toxicologists, environmental scientists, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
