dc.description.abstractThis dissertation is intended to review current knowledge and thinking regarding the use (and abuse) of pest control methods in agriculture. Throughout, the emphasis is made on the impact caused by these methods on individual health and the environment. A review is made of the various methods, their efficacy or otherwise, and the harmful effects with reference to past incidents as well as long term effects. The measures implemented to control these harmful effects are also discussed with reference to the international as well as the local situation; this includes legislation as well as alternative methods.en_GB
