About this book

Initially greeted with scepticism, the Boxworth Project now marks an important watershed in research and attitudes towards the environmental impact of pesticide use. The Project was a 7-year study of the effects of total- and selected- pesticide usage on an entire farm, and laid the basis for the current shift to moderate, supervised use of pesticides on farms. This is a summary of the study methods, and all the findings and conclusions.


Contents
