Pesticide Residues and Risk Assessment from Monitoring Programs in the Largest Production Area of Leafy Vegetables in South Korea: A 15-Year Study
Leafy vegetables are widely consumed in South Korea, especially in the form of kimchi and namul (seasoned vegetables) and are used for wrapping meat. Therefore, the management of pesticide residues
Non‐targeted insecticidal stress in a pest species: insecticides, sexual fitness and hormesis in the Neotropical brown stink bug Euschistus heros
TLDR
The positive response to chlorantraniliprole exposure reinforces the notion that sublethal exposure of the brown stink bug to this insecticide may lead to stimulatory (hormetic) response favouring its outbreaks in soybean fields.
Simultaneous determination of selected hormones, endocrine disruptor compounds, and pesticides in water medium at trace levels by GC-MS after dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction
TLDR
A dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction method was developed for preconcentration of 12 analytes including hormones, endocrine disruptor compounds, and pesticides, to be analyzed by gas chromatography mass spectrometry.
Change in activity of detoxifying enzymes in directionally selected population of tea mosquito bug (Helopeltis theivora) (Heteroptera: Miridae) by an organophosphate insecticide
TLDR
Isozyme profiles of defence enzymes can be used as indices for identifying tolerance level in the field population of H. theivora, enabling tea planters to carry out rapid monitoring of the tolerance status of the pest populations, thereby providing a ready clue to choose an effective insecticide for pest management.
Effects of a Simulated Agricultural Runoff Event on Sediment Toxicity in a Managed Backwater Wetland
We examined the effects of an amended mixture of three pesticides, atrazine (72.7 g), S-metolachlor (54.5 g), and permethrin (both cis and trans isomers; 11.4 g), on 10-day sediment toxicity to
Pesticide Use In Agriculture And Its Socio- Economic Contexts, A Case Study of Panchkhal Area, Kavre, Nepal
Panchkhal area is the potential area for the agricultural production and serves as pocket for the vegetables for Kathmandu valley< Nepal. So for increasing the yield, maximum percentage of farmers
Pozitiva a negativa aplikace pesticidů v zemědělství

We Know Where the Shoe Pinches: A Case Study-Based Analysis of the Social Benefits of Pesticides
Most published material relating to pesticides focuses on negative effects. Previous work by the authors has linked pesticides to a range of benefits, but not to wider social outcomes. In this study,
Pesticide residue monitoring in Korean agricultural products, 2003–05
TLDR
Between 2003 and 2005, a total of 11,716 samples were collected and analysed to determine the level of pesticides residues and procymidone, endosulfan, chlorfenapyr, metalaxyl, and diethofencarb were frequently detected.
Monitoring Adherence to the International Code of Conduct: Highly Hazardous Pesticides in Central Andean Agriculture and Farmers' Rights to Health
TLDR
Monitoring adherence to the Food and Agriculture Organization's Code of Conduct to reduce use of highly hazardous pesticides in lower and middle income countries required informed farmer and farmworker participation in monitoring adherence and active involvement of non-governmental organizations and municipal governments.

Economic analysis of yield losses due to diseases: a case study of early leaf spot of groundnut in Malawi
TLDR
The results show that depending on the area allocated to groundnut cultivation, an additional 1.75 to 14.0 persons per family could be made food-secure by controlling early leaf spot, and unless economically viable technological alternatives are developed for reducing yield losses the potential benefits of crop production cannot be fully realized.
