Description

This handbook provides those involved with agricultural chemicals with a collection of consistent data on substances most commonly used throughout the world for agricultural purposes. Organized by functional category, the 1800 main entries are divided into the following groups: acaricides, agricultural chemicals, animal feeds, fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, molluscicides, nematicides, plant growth regulators, rodenticides and slimicides. Almost all records describing pure chemicals carry the appropriate CAS Registry Number and the associated EINECS Number. All chemicals in this edition which also appear in the 12th edition of the Merck Index have the Merck Index Number provided. Wherever possible, the following information is also provided for each entry: chemical composition, physical properties, functions, applications, acute toxicity and suppliers. A key feature of the reference is the extensive coverage of synonyms. The book includes an index of 5000 chemical synonyms and tradenames, with a cross-reference to their main entry.
