Chemistry and chemicals in agriculture.

Agricultural Chemistry is the science of chemical compositions and changes involved in the production, protection, and use of crops and livestock.

The aim of agrochemistry is to control and understand the processes by which humans obtain food and fiber for them-selves and feed for their animals; that includes all the life processes through which food and fiber are obtained for humans and theirs animals, and control of these processes to increase yields, improve quality, and reduce costs.

The following directory contains information and sources of information on chemicals in agriculture as well as to those used in agriculture chemicals (see also: agrochemicals, pesticides and soil chemistry).

Wiley-Vch (Corporate Author)

Ullmann's Agrochemicals Volume 1+2
Plant Growth, Plant and Crop Protection.

This one-stop resource is tailor-made for all those involved in the modern agricultural practices and interested in the industrial production, effectiveness and application of agrochemicals. Based on the latest online edition of "Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry" and containing articles never before seen in print, this ready reference meets the need for a detailed survey of the fundamentals, industrial processes, effectiveness and the applications of agrochemicals as well as the environmental and toxicological aspects. This book presents an overview of all aspects of modern agricultural practices. In each chapter, corresponding practical and theoretical aspects are discussed, and each entry is accompanied by its chemical structure, physical properties, synthesis, agricultural use, trade names, toxicology, and its ecological significance. Readers benefit from the rigorous and cross-indexed nature of the parent reference, and will find both broad introductory information and details of significance to industrial and academic environments.

Peroxidizing Herbicides

Experts in herbicide research and development - chemists and plant physiologists -, have written 15 chapters that review all aspects pertinent to peroxidizing herbicides, compounds of topical interest since extremely low use rates ensure high environmental safety. Topics covered include structure-activity relationships, relevant patent literature, preparative methods, modes of action, greenhouse screening, laboratory assays, plant pigment biochemistry, and enzymology of the decisive target enzyme of this class of herbicides. This comprehensive review will be welcomed as a unique and timely compilation of the current status of peroxidizing herbicide research and development. It will be of interest to professional chemists and biologists in agrochemical companies, universities and agricultural colleges.
