Side effects of pesticide applications


Abstract: Whilst farmers and growers endeavour to take an ‘holistic’ approach to crop production, and the need for an holistic approach is also implied by IPM, it is unlikely that many producers and their advisors consider the impact of any one management action on the ‘whole crop’. This short paper discusses some of the side effects of pesticide applications on non-target species and identifies some of the sources of information available about them.
