Production, distribution, use and environmental impact potential of selected pesticides. [Washington], [Environmental Protection Agency], [] (OCoLC) Production, distribution, use and environmental impact potential of selected pesticides - Final report 25 Feb - 15 Mar By R. von Ruemker, E.W. Lawless, A.F. Meiners, Miss. (USA) Kansas City Midwest Research Inst., Kan. (USA) Shawnee Mission RvR Consultants and D.C. (USA) Washington Council on Environmental Quality. Environmental contamination or occupational use can expose the general population to pesticides residues, including physical and biological degradation products present in the air, water, and food [ 9 ]. Less than 1% of the total amount of pesticides applied for weed and pest control reach the target by: Agrochemicals have enabled to more than duplicate food production during the last century, and the current need to increase food production to feed a rapid growing human population maintains pressure on the intensive use of pesticides and by:

  Environmental impacts of pesticide use were commonly proxied through variables such as pounds of active ingredient (A.I.) applied or dollars spent on pesticides. The disadvantage is that both these measures assume environmental damage is directly correlated with the quantity of pesticide used, regardless of the specific chemical formulation Cited by: Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are commonly used by the farmers for improvement of soil fertility, growth, and productivity of crops under salt-based and . There is a high pesticide use on crops grown for export (Dr. N. Besbelli, WHO, personal communication). d) Although developing countries use only 25% of the pesticides produced worldwide, they experience 99% of the deaths. This is because use of pesticides tends to be more intense and unsafe, and regulatory, health and education systems are. Production and usage of pesticides in India. The production of pesticides started in India in with the establishment of a plant for the production of BHC near Calcutta, and India is now the second largest manufacturer of pesticides in Asia after China and ranks twelfth globally (Mathur, ).There has been a steady growth in the production of technical grade pesticides Cited by:

5. A level of pesticide use in compliance with economic rationality 6. Regulation policies which are difficult to justify and implement Potential technical actions 7. Reducing pesticide dispersion in the environment 8. Promoting Integrated Pest Management 9. Reducing pesticide use Means Principles and instruments for a pollution regulation.

If commodities are to be stored, transported, or processed, they must be protected from deterioration and loss caused by pests. Such losses place a heavy economic burden on the consumer, and their consequences may be disastrous in times of food by:
