About this book

Highlighting means of reducing toxicity, increasing efficacy, lessening environmental impact, and facilitating product development, this work covers up-to-date advances in pesticide delivery technologies. It evaluates pesticide formulations and their use in mixtures that reduce physical incompatibilities in spray tanks and biological anatagonism in the field.

The book provides essential reading for all those involved in pesticide formulation as well as environmental scientists as there will increasing pressure to optimise dosage delivery to obtain economic control, while reducing the amount of pesticide released into the environment. ---International Pest Control
