Database on Pesticides and the Environment is a comprehensive database on various aspects of pesticides used and their effects on the environment, human and animal health in ten countries in Asia.
The Database on Pesticides and the Environment is the result of information compiled from 1992 to 1996. Although, it may be out of date in some areas, e.g. Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) and Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) and may contains other inaccuracies, it constitutes a unique source of information on pesticides used in Asia. For the first time, pesticides widely used in Asia were put in a direct relationship with their environmental and health effects. An attempt was also made attracting the attention of the users of the database to environmentally friendlier alternatives of crop protection, e.g. through Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods.
