Written in clear, non-technical language, this text is designed as an introduction for those who will be directly responsible for the application of pesticides. 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.
