Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 6)

Abstract

Chemicals for many years have been an important means of controlling pests afflicting man, his animals, and food crops. Informed opinion is a consensus that with the growing world food crisis, chemicals for pest control will continue to be vital in production of food. This does not minimize other non-chemical approaches, or integrated pest control approaches, but rather recognize that pesticides remain in many instances our sole weapon of defense.
