Predicting Pesticide Residues to Reduce Crop Contamination

  • E. I. Spynu
Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 109)


Man’s efforts to restructure nature have led not only to unquestioned achievements but also to certain unforeseen negative consequences. A major example of this dichotomy is the widespread agricultural use of chemicals. Pesticides are widely used to control pests and plant diseases, which cause international losses amounting to $74.9 billion; this figure represents 50% of the entire cost of global agricultural production. Along with these important economic advantages, however, these chemicals produce significant environmental and human health effects.
