However, herbicide use also carries risks that include environmental, ecological and human health effects. This book presents current research in the study of herbicides, including a review of herbicide usage and properties, herbicide degradation studies and environmental implications; bioremediation of herbicide contaminated soil; the environmental fate and effects of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic herbicide; interactions between herbicides and humic acids present in soils and the alteration of carbohydrate metabolism of grapevine after herbicide treatment."--Pub. desc.
