Pesticide Risk Assessment in Rice Paddies Theory and Practice Book Review:

Rice is cultivated throughout the world under submerged conditions. The high water requirements and the heavy pesticide load used in rice paddies worldwide have resulted in contamination of associated surface water, such as streams, ditches, rivers and lakes. The uniform risk assessment approach which has been developed for other crops is not applicable to rice paddies, because of the specific conditions applied to rice cultivation. Pesticide Risk Assessment in Rice Paddies: Theory and Practice fills the gap in information on this subject. Written by experts, this book summarizes the methods used for pesticide risk assessment in rice paddies, the limitations and problems encountered and future developments. It also examines the various agronomic, pesticide application and risk assessment approaches used in different rice cultivated zones in Asia, America and Europe and is an essential reference for those working in this area. * The only up-to-date book dealing with pesticide risk assessment in the flooded conditions of rice paddies * Offers guidelines on the use and application of existing modeling tools, specific for rice cultivation * Presents the differences and similarities in rice cropping systems and how these relate to pesticide risk assessment

Impact of Pesticides on Farmer Health and the Rice Environment Book Review:

The book covers the various aspects of the use of pesticides, their behavior, degradation, and impacts in wetland ricefields, and presents the results of surveys conducted in the Philippines and Thailand. It includes both bibliographic reviews and selected aspects of the experimental results of a research project on pesticide impacts in wetland ricefields. The first phase of the `Pesticide Impact' project was developed in the Philippines from 1989 to 1991. It was a multidisciplinary/collaborative approach involving scientists from IRRI, NRI (England), ORSTOM (France), UPLB (Philippines) who studied the effects of pesticides on the environment and on farmers' health, and the economical aspects of their use.

Integrated Pest Management for Rice 3rd Edition Book Review:

ntegrated pest management (IPM) provides a long-term strategy for minimizing losses caused by pests, with as little cost to the grower and disruption of the environment as possible. Written by a collaboration of experts in the field, this detailed manual is designed to help growers apply IPM principles in managing their rice crops. What's Inside? Special sections on crop growth and development and general management practices offer vital background information on using IPM strategies. The chapter on “Managing Pests in Rice” provides a detailed chart of management considerations that will help you plan your IPM program and predict or prevent potential problems before they occur. Vibrant and colorful photographs and descriptions fill the pest sections (weeds, invertebrates, diseases, and vertebrates) to help identify pests and pest damage. An informative glossary is available for looking up definitions of unfamiliar terms. What's new in the 3rd Edition? New exotic pest discussionNew detecting, confirming, and managing herbicide resistance sections21 new photos added for diseases, weeds, and vertebratesColor illustrationsNew life cycle illustrations for each disease3 new diseases and 4 new weeds, including Bakanae, Rice Blast, and Red Rice

Comparative Assessment of the Environmental Costs of Aquaculture and Other Food Production Sectors Book Review:

The global food production sector is growing. In many areas farming systems are intensifying. This rapid growth has in some cases caused environmental damage. This document include an introduction and 12 review papers describing methods for such comparisons as well as the deliberations of their authors, a group of nineteen international experts on environmental economics, energy accounting, material and environmental flows analysis, aquaculture, agriculture and international development. Experts concluded that comparisons can be useful for addressing local development and zoning concerns, global issues of sustainability and trade and consumer preferences for inexpensive food produced in an environmentally sustainable manner. In order to be useful, however, methods to assess environmental costs should be scientifically based, comparable across different sectors, expandable to different scales, inclusive of externalities, practical to implement and easily understood by managers and policy-makers. Aquaculture in many locations and conditions is or could be much more environment friendly than other food sectors.--Publisher's description.
