    The latest edition featuring up to date information on pesticide applications, formulation techniques, innovations in the agrochemical field and related current government agricultural regulations.

    In addition to a comprehensive twenty-year historical review of the ASTM Committee E-35 on Pesticides, this publication features twenty-eight peer-reviewed papers divided into the following three categories:

    Pesticide Application Technology and Off-Target Effects-- Ten papers focus on different aspects of pesticide application technology, including spray cloud characteristics,electrostatics and a practical tank mixing evaluation procedure, as well as the impact of drift and evaporation of pesticide sprays, pesticide container regulations and recycling.

    Formulation Technology-- Polymers, varying surfactants, water soluble and water dispersible granules are explored in seven papers.

    Formulation Modifications and Biological Effects-- Eleven papers deal with the biological impact of formulation changes such as stability and pH effects, adhesion, and numerous controlled release technologies.
