Sittig’s Handbook of Pesticides and Agricultural Chemicals is specifically designed for use by those engaged in the agricultural and food processing industries, both vital to our nation’s health and its economy. Agriculture extension agents, food toxicologists and technology engineers and formulators working in every phase of food production from the farm to the fork will find a wealth of material here. It will also be of interest to professionals in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics and personal care products industries who use agricultural products as ingredients. It provides crop, chemical, regulatory, health, and safety information on nearly 800 pesticides, fertilizers, and other agricultural chemicals. These chemicals are organized with unique identifiers so that all who may have contact with or interest in them can find critical information quickly.
