      Abstract. The physical and chemical properties of chlorpyrifos (O, O-diethyl O-3,5,6-trichloropyridinyl phosphorothioate, CPY; CAS No. ) are the primary determinants that govern fate (movement, adsorption, degradation, and catabolism) in the environment and in uses of chlorpyrifos in locations of interest, such as the United States in the case of this paper, are .

The objectives were to: (1) inventory pesticides used on potatoes, (2) rank the target pests and (3) estimate the economic value of the major by: Abstract.

Pesticide use in the United States amounts to about 1 billion pounds per year (Berry, ). While most ( million pounds) of these pesticides are used in agricultural production, a significant amount is applied by homeowners, industry, and government agencies (Berry, ).

households have at least one pesticide in storage, and 63% have one to five stored.4 A Minnesota survey 5 found that on. The development and growing use of synthetic organic pesticides have been an integral part of a technological revolution in U.S.

agriculture that increased productivity by times between and Growth in pesticide use has created many controversies about potential effects of pesticides on food safety, groundwater quality, worker. Corn has been the top pesticide-using crop in the United States since and received about 39 percent of the pesticides in (mostly herbicides).

Denmark developed an action plan in to reduce the use of pesticides 50% before (Mogensen, ). Sweden also approved a program in to reduce pesticide use by 50% within 5 years. The Netherlands is developing a program to reduce pesticide use 50% in 10 years (Süddeutsche Zeitung, ).

Pesticide Use Trends in the United States: A Year US Summary 2 contained in Tables 5–8 are presented as pounds of active ingredient (a.i.) per acre.

In the “other conventional” pesticide category presented in Tables 5–8, the data include nematicides, fumigants, rodenticides, and other miscel-laneous conventional pesticides. Food and Pesticides Pesticides are widely used in producing food to control pests such as insects, rodents, weeds, bacteria, mold and fungus.

Under the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), EPA must ensure that all pesticides used on food in the United States meet FQPA's stringent safety standard. About 1 billion pounds of conventional pesticides are used each year in the United States to control weeds, insects, and other pests.

The use of pesticides has resulted in a range of benefits, including increased food production and reduction of insect-borne disease, but also raises questions about possible adverse effects on the environment, including water quality.

They also may be applied to crops in the fall, to improve harvesting. Figure 1. Agricultural use of herbicides in in millions of acres. Reproduced from USDA Economic Research Service, Pest Management.

Herbicides are used in forest management to prepare logged areas for replanting. Use of Potato Pesticides There are 11 major potato producing states in the United States. Washington, Oregon and Idaho accounted for 52 per-cent of potato acreage in Idaho has the most potato acreage of these three states withacres (35 percent of the total national acreage).

Washington ranks second nationwide withacres.for a list of pesticides that have been banned in the United States. Severely Restricted Pesticides A "Severely Restricted" pesticide means a pesticide for which virtually all registered uses have been prohibited by final EPA regulatory action, but for which certain specific registered use .Reducing the use of pesticides and choosing less toxic pesticides may reduce risks placed on society and the environment from pesticide use.

Integrated pest management, the use of multiple approaches to control pests, is becoming widespread and has been used with success in countries such as Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, the U.S., Australia, and Mexico.
