It develops an understanding of the importance of pesticides as highly-regulated chemicals that deserve respect in their use in food and fiber production. Comprehensive in approach, it covers all aspects of pesticide principles and use: animal and plant pests; laws; liability and recordkeeping; labels; safety; environmental considerations; formulations; application equipment; transportation; storage; decontamination; disposal; and integrated pest management. This wide range of information also makes this text useful as a desk reference.
