The IUPAC Committee on Crop Protection Chemistry, which is a sub-committee, of the Chemistry and the Environment Division of IUPAC publishes authoritative scientific papers and reviews on a range of issues concerning pesticides. The committee has a wide range of experts coming from academic, government and industrial backgrounds(*). A list of the publications is given below for various topics in chronological order.
