Industrial Chemistry Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Encyclopedia of Agrochemicals
3 Volume Set
edited by Jack R. Plimmer

The definitive reference work on agrochemicals!

The three volume Encyclopedia of Agrochemicals is the first major reference work exclusively devoted to the cataloging, analysis, regulation, utility, and environmental impact of agrochemicals.

Encyclopedia of Agrochemicals provides coverage of a wide range of topics contributed by experts world wide. The work emphasizes the chemicals used in agriculture for management of pests, their development, use, metabolism, toxicology and mode of action. These chemicals include pesticides, such as the herbicides (weed killers), insecticides and fungicides.

Applications of biotechnology are included as are discussions of natural products and growth regulators. Fertilizers and soil fertility are covered at length as well as the persistence of pesticide residues, their degradation, environmental transport and implications of their residues in the environmental. Toxicological and regulatory implications are also included throughout.

Comprehensive range of topics include:

  • Emphasizing chemicals used in pest management and soil fertility
  • Cover the chemistry, properties, toxicology, biotechnology, regulatory and environmental aspects of agrochemicals
  • Expert contributors from around the world
  • Provides an introduction to the field of agrochemicals
  • Environmental and toxicological aspects are included

This work is a single source reference containing authoritative articles, definitions, literature citations and suggestions for further reading.

Encyclopedia of Agrochemicals proves an invaluable resource guide to government policy makers and environmental analysts as well as scientists in the agricultural, veterinary, chemical, and biotechnology industries.
