Chemistry of Crop Protection: Progress and Prospects in Science and Regulation

Günther Voss and Gerardo Ramos (editors)
Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, 2003.
(ISBN: 3-527-30540-8)

The ever-increasing demands for environmental and consumer protection are a continuous challenge for research, development, and regulation of crop protection chemicals. This book contains 30 invited lectures presented at the 10th IUPAC International Congress on the Chemistry of Crop Protection, held 4—9 August 2002 in Basel, Switzerland. These edited contributions take the form of reviews and presentations of original research results. They cover fundamental aspects of biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology of disease, weed and insect control agents, economic issues, aspects in production, formulation and application, and recent regulatory developments in environmental and consumer protection. This book should prove invaluable for industrial and academic research libraries in support of their R&D departments. The congress, held every four years, attracted the participation of approximately 1300 scientists from more than 50 countries. It was locally organized by the Swiss Society of Chemical Industries and Syngenta under IUPAC auspices.

The technical program was focused on the chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology of insect, weed, and disease control, and also included strong emphases on crop protection product environmental fate, residue chemistry, consumer safety, and regulation. The latest advances in research and regulation of crop protection chemistry were highlighted via more than 600 posters and also through a series of plenary lectures and interactive workshops.
