The impact of pesticides consists of the effects of pesticides on non-target ides are chemical preparations used to kill fungal or animal pests. Over 98% of sprayed insecticides and 95% of herbicides reach a destination other than their target species, because they are sprayed or spread across entire agricultural fields. Runoff can carry pesticides into aquatic environments . The whole picture. Organic food contributes to better health through reduced pesticide exposure for all and increased nutritional quality. In order to understand the importance of eating organic food from the perspective of toxic pesticide contamination, we need to look at the whole picture—from the farmworkers who do the valuable work of growing food, to the waterways .

Downloadable! Pesticides of various kinds have been used on a large scale in China since the s to protect crops from damages inflicted by insects and diseases. Annual pesticide production reached more than , metric tons after the mids (Huang et al., ). China was the second largest pesticide using country in the world in the s and is the Cited by: Pesticides provide economic benefits to producers (Chapter 2) and by extension to consumers. One of the major benefits of pesticides is protection of crop quality and yield. Pesticides can under some circumstances prevent large crop losses, thus raising agricultural output and farm income (Zilberman ). The increased supply of crops can be.
