Description
Although chemical pesticides safeguard crops and improve farm productivity, they are increasingly feared for their potentially dangerous residues and their effects on ecosystems.

The Future Role of Pesticides explores the role of chemical pesticides in the decade ahead and identifies the most promising opportunities for increasing the benefits and reducing the risks of pesticide use. The book recommends R&D, program, and policy initiatives for federal agriculture authorities and other stakeholders in the public and private sectors. This book presents clear overviews of key factors in chemical pesticide use, including:
-- Advances in genetic engineering not only of pest-resistant crops but also of pests themselves.
-- Problems in pesticide use.
-- Impending shifts in agriculture.

With a model and working examples, this book offers guidance on how to assess various pest control strategies available to today's agriculturist.
