 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Weed control has always been an indispensable and integral part of agriculture from the time farming started. Weeds pose serious threat to crop productivity, native biodiversity, human and animal health and aquatic environment. It has been observed that weeds reduce crop yields to almost one third. To alleviate this huge yield loss, as on today chemical weed management through herbicides is the best option for timely management of weeds. There has been a tremendous growth in the herbicide industry over the last two decades and herbicides are increasingly used for control of weeds in the field and plantation crops than ever before. At present, herbicides industry has developed from almost nothing to a multi billion-dollar business. Unlike other pesticides, herbicides are very specific to crops and therefore should be selected and used properly for maximum returns. The main objective of the authors of writing this book is to produce a comprehensive books that compiles the latest and complete information on different aspects of herbicides. This book is written by Dr. Shobha Sondhia and Dr. Jay G. Varshney who are well-Know experts in the field of weed management and herbicide use. The book contains fourteen chapters, beginning with an overview followed by basic information on herbicide chemistry, classification, absorption, transport, mode of action, metabolism in plants, selectivity and resistance, fate and persistence, adjuvants, use of herbicides in major field crops, herbicides residues in soil, food chain, water and its management, effect on soil health, succeeding crop, non target organisms, and herbicide toxicology, which are discusses in detail. In the last two chapters formulations and application techniques and equipments are given with illustrations and figures. At the end of the book, list of herbicides, their common and chemical name along with toxicity class, maximum residue limits, physicochemical properties are also appended. The authors believe that this book will be of immense use as a reference book for the academicians, researchers, students and policy makers for quick reference.
