The definitive reference work on agrochemicals
Agrochemicals, such as pesticides, animal food additives, veterinary drugs, and related compounds, have become absolutely integral to the production of large-scale agriculture. As the prevalence of agrochemicals has steadily increased during the past 50 years, so have their complexity and sophistication. 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. This multidisciplinary resource proves an invaluable guide to government policy makers and environmental analysts as well as scientists in the agricultural, veterinary, chemical, and biotechnology industries.
