Environmental Behaviour of Agrochemicals deals with a major area of concern regarding the use of agrochemicals - the potential for contamination of soil, air and water. This ninth volume in the Progress in Pesticide Biochemistry and Toxicology series, provides an international outlook on the impact of the production and use of agrochemicals on the environment, In Environmental Behaviour of.

Content: Achieving rational use of agrochemicals: environmental chemistry in action / Ivan R. Kennedy [et al.] --Simple fugacity models of off-site exposure to agrochemicals / Don Mackay and Eva Webster --Pesticide risk indicators: their role in minimizing off-site impacts of pesticides on water quality / Rai S. Kookana [et al.] --Development of a decision-making tool to minimize. The extensive use of agrochemicals and frequent occurrence of their negative effects on non-target organisms mandate the need to understand the environmental fate of new pesticide products [1] [2. Pesticides are commonly applied agrochemicals, however their long-term chemical behaviour and environmental fate involving degradation processes have not . Introduction. Pesticides and agrochemicals, in general, became an important component of worldwide agriculture systems during the last century, allowing for a noticeable increase in crop yields and food production (Alexandratos and Bruinsma ).Notwithstanding, the exponentially growing human population further stresses the need for enhancing food by:

The book will be published in research trends and analytical methods related to agrochemicals. It also includes trade related issues associated with agrochemicals. Behaviour of pesticides/agrochemicals in food/feed, soil and aquatic environment is a serious concern from the point of environmental issues related to the topic. Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety is a multi-disciplinary journal that focuses on understanding the exposure and effects of environmental contamination on organisms including human health. The scope of the journal covers three main themes. The topics within these themes are indicated below (but are not limited to) the following. It is hoped that the use of more specific agrochemicals and approaches may avoid, or at least considerably reduce such severe and irreversible effects in nature. The insecticides covered are considered from numerous points of views: chemistry, toxicological profile, risk assessment, legal status, environmental behaviour and selectivity. The book may also be useful in academia to utilize its up-to-date knowledge in the training of students., This book forming the ll 1 h part of the RSC Green Chemistry Series discusses the present approaches for insect pest control as green alternatives to the classical and generally more toxic agrochemicals.
