Chemistry of Crop Protection
Progress and Prospects in Science and Regulation
edited by G. Voss

Chemistry of Crop Protection exclusively documents thirty invited lectures held at the 10th IUPAC International Congress on the Chemistry of Crop Protection in August 2002.

These contributions take the form of reviews and presentations of original research results. They cover fundamental aspects of biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology of disease, weed and insect control agents, as well as economic issues, aspects in production, formulation and application, and recent regulatory developments in environmental and consumer protection.

This reference is invaluable for industrial and academic research libraries in support of their R&D departments with the latest, exclusive information.
