Such substances are used primarily to control pests that infest cultivated plants or to eliminate disease-carrying insects in specific areas. Learn more about the types, modes of penetration, uses, and environmental impacts of insecticides. insecticides in large quantities has been expl oited, e.g. in the production of nicotine, anabasine and phytoecdysterone by a number of plant species (vide Chapter 16 for detail).Author: Amita Pal. This book is a compilation of 29 chapters focused on: pesticides and food production, environmental effects of pesticides, and pesticides mobility, transport and fate.
