Abstract

PESTICEDES HAVE BECOME an integral part of intensive agriculture. This has resulted in extensive research on the biological efficacy and environmental fate of pesticides. One area of significant interest is the transformation of pesticides in the environment. The mechanisms of pesticide degradation and the products formed from various physical, chemical and biological processes have been well documented. For most currently used pesticides, however, the fate and significance of their transformation products are yet to be elucidated.
