Description

This one-stop reference for everyone working in the agrochemical business is the leading reference in the field, with first-class authors from all major crop protection companies, including Bayer, Dow, Syngenta and BASF. In three volumes, one each on herbicides, fungicides and insecticides, it provides up-to-date information on the chemical properties, mode of action, range of application, industrial-scale synthesis and commercial products. The new edition has been updated and expanded by more than 50 new compounds and their mechanisms, for a complete picture of agrochemicals introduced since 1990.
A truly comprehensive source of top quality information.
