Abstract
A pesticide is any substance used to prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate insects, rodents, nematodes, fungi, weeds or other organisms considered pests. Plant growth regulators, defoliants, desiccants,and insect repellents are also among the many substances regulated as pesticides. Pesticides are ubiquitous, being used in homes, schools, workplaces,and communities. Pesticides play an important pest management role in most coventional and organic agricultural operations worldwide. The widspread dissemination of pesticides, however, creates potential for related illness and injury, especially among pesticide handlers and agricultural workers.
