Abstract

THE VERY DISTURBING AND PREVAILING PROBLEM OF THE EXCESSIVE USE OF PESTICIDAL PRODUCTS FOR PROTECTION OF AGRICULTURE AGAINST THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY ANIMALS AND PLANTS STILL REMAINS OPEN AND SERIOUS BECAUSE OF THE DANGEROUS SECONDARY EFFECTS WHICH THE MAJORITY OF THEM HAVE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, ON HUMANS OR THE ENVIRONMENT. THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT WHEN THE CROP IN QUESTION, SUCH AS FRUIT AND MARKET-GARDEN PRODUCE, IS DESTINED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION IN ITS ORIGINAL STATE. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS SITUATION HAS FORCED PHYTIATERS TO ORIENTATE THEIR STUDIES TOWARDS THE SEARCH FOR AN APPROPRIATE SOLUTION AIMED AT THE PHYTOSANITARY DEFENCE OF THE CROP BY USING MORE SPECIFIC PRODUCTS AND MORE ADEQUATE STRATEGIES IN ORDER TO PREVENT THE SERIOUS TOXICOLOGICAL AND ECOLOGICAL ADVERSE EFFECTS DETECTED.
