THE LATEST version of the Pesticide Manual is now available from the British Crop Protection Council.

The manual covers 8,200 product names and is available as a printed or CD-ROM version.

The updated version includes an extra 19 records, 10 of which are new substances included for the first time, said editor Clive Tomlin.

‘Smiles codes‘ have also been included for the first time, used by chemists who want to enter chemical structures into structure-handling software.

Copies of the Manual, priced £250 + VAT, can be ordered via the BCPC website at www.bcpc.org/bookshop.
