Interactions Between Pesticides and Their Major Degradation Products
The interactions between parent pesticide compounds and their degradation product(s) can influence the fate of both pesticides and degradation products. The role of pesticide degradation products in influencing the persistence and degradation of parent compounds, and the enhanced degradation of degradation products are discussed. The significance of these interactions in crop protection is also addressed.
