Beschreibung:

Chemical pesticides have contributed greatly to the increase of yields in agriculture by controlling pests and diseases and also towards checking the insect-borne diseases like malaria in the human health sector. However their sporadic use has been leading to significant erosion not only to public health but also to food quality resulting in an impact load on the environment and hence the development of pest resistance. The latter is reducing their efficacy and consequently one has to continually search for other chemical pesticides that may be more toxic and expensive. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) several hundred thousand tons of dangerous and useless pesticides are currently plaguing the countries around the globe. Even worse funds available for the cleanup of these obsolete pesticides are highly inadequate. On the other hand the rise in cost of pesticides has also economic consequences both to the individual farmer and the nation. Though overuse and misuse there is considerable waste, adding to the cost and contributing to the adverse environmental and health consequences. This not only affects the user of pesticides but also the ecosystem in general by entering the food chain and polluting the water table and surface water. Unprecedented rise of cancer chronic kidney disease, suppression of the immune system sterility among males and females, endocrine disorders, neurological and behavioural disorders, especially among children, have been attributed to chronic poisoning. Thus the formulation and applications of pesticides must be accurate in order to obtain the best possible must be accurate in order to obtain the best possible result, which will help in reducing the pesticide load in the environment.;Besides the status report of the experts from 13 developing countries, this publication includes manuscripts and papers by eminent experts dealing with the technology of application of pesticides; usage of pesticides and occupational health; eco-friendly alternate strategies for the management of crop pests, diseases and weeds through biotechnological approaches; legislation governing the use of pesticides; technologies and alternative technologies; biological control etc. The publication also includes a set of recommendations made during the workshop.;;Contents;Introduction; Inaugural Addres by Tissa Vitarana; Address by Arun P Kulshreshtha; Address by Guest of Honour Sarat Weerasena; Address by Chief Guest Kapila Gunasekara; Vote of Thanks by M C N Jayasuriya; Welcome Address by Tissa Vitarana; Workshop Strategy by M C N Jayasuriya; Kenyote Address by V Gowariker; Usage of Pesticides and Occupational Health by Ravindra Fernando; Eco-friendly Alternate Strategies for the Management of Crop Pests, Diseases and Weeds through Biotechnological Approaches by Seema Wahab; Legislation Governing the Use of Pesticides by Gamini Manuweera.;Country Status Report;Bangladesh by M S Malek & Md Mahubar Rahman; Colombia by Laverde Luis Antonio Gomz; Egypt by Yasser El-Sheikh; India by Sanjay Bajpai; Indonesia by Priyo Wahyudi; Malaysia by Subramanian David; Mauritius by Deovruth Abeeluck; Myanmar by Dr San San Yu; Nepal by Neesha Rana (Basnyat); Pakistan by Tahera Syeds Khatoon; Sri Lanka by L Nugaliyadde, A A L Amarasinghe, U Gangoda, D M N Dissanayake, G K Manuweera & A S K Abeysekera; Zambia by Patrick Chiza Chikoti.;Panel Discussions;Application of Pesticides: Technologies and Alternative Technologies by Chairperson: Sarath Bandara; Application of Pesticides: Effects on Occupational Health by Chairperson: W A J M de Costa; Biological Control by Chairperson: G K Manuweera; Application of Pesticides: Legislation by Chairperson: G K Manuweera.;Recommendations;Technology of Application of Pesticides; Kandy Declaration.
