    The dissonance present in what consumers prefer compared with the reasons farmers choose tools such as pesticides speaks to the need for explicating the role of crop protection. This article reviews the process the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to assess the safety of pesticides, determine safe exposure levels, establish This book also contains formulae, manufacturing process, infrared and ultraviolet spectra of seventy six pesticides and so on. The book contains formulae, processes of different types of pesticides, insecticides, fungicides and herbicides.

Pesticides approval and registration are performed "taking into account the economic, social and environmental costs and benefits of the use of any pesticide". The present book documents the various adverse impacts of pesticides usage: pollution, dietary intake and health
