Pesticide Application Methods

Pesticide Application Methods is the standard work on the subject for all those involved in crop protection. This fully updated Fourth Edition takes account of the considerable changes in legislation, especially within the European Union, affecting some pesticides and how they can be applied. With greater emphasis now on protecting the environment, an additional chapter in this edition describes the importance of managing treatments to minimise spray drift, and the chapter on applying biopesticides has been updated, with the assistance of Paul Miller and Roy Bateman respectively. Basic information on the role of pesticides in integrated pest management is given with a discussion on the importance of defining the target and choice of spray spectrum to optimise delivery. The range of droplets and types of equipment for different methods of application, including seed treatment, are described with information on safe use and maintenance. Pesticide Application Methods, 4th Edition, provides an essential reference for all those involved in crop protection, including entomologists, plant pathologists, weed scientists and agricultural engineers, whether researchers, consultants or those training in international, government or academic organisations, or the plant science industry. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where agricultural and biological sciences are studied or taught should have copies of this excellent new edition on their shelves.
