Edited by Margarita Stoytcheva, ISBN 978-953-307-532-7, 808 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published January 21, 2011 under CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 licenseDOI: 10.5772/1004 This book provides an overview on a large variety of pesticide-related topics, organized in three sections. The first part is dedicated to the "safer" pesticides derived from natural materials, the design and the optimization of pesticides formulations, and the techniques for pesticides application. The second part is intended to demonstrate the agricultural products, environmental and biota pesticides contamination and the impacts of the pesticides presence on the ecosystems. The third part presents current investigations of the naturally occurring pesticides degradation phenomena, the environmental effects of the break down products, and different approaches to pesticides residues treatment.

PUBARTICLES 19/09/11 Pesticide Export and Import Rise in July 2011 By ccminternational : A how to tutorial about pesticide, flurorine, glyphosate, [+]Business with step by step guide from ccminternational. [^] According to the statistic data from China National Bureau of Statistics (CNBS), China's pesticide output in July 2011 reached 214,530 tonnes, up 9.5% year on year. Total pesticide output of the seven largest pesticide production provinces in China reached 172,395 tonnes during this period, accounting for 80.36% of the total output in July 2011, according to CCM’s latest issue of Crop Protection China News. And the volume and value of export and import all witness increase respectively in July 2011. Export China, as a large pesticide production country in the world, greatly relies on pesticide foreign trade; its pesticide dependency degree of foreign trade reached 80%.

L ALSACE 23/12/11 Déchets de lindane à Hagenthal-le-Bas et Hagenthal-le-Haut : les mesures prises par le préfet du Haut-Rhin COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE du Préfet du Haut-Rhin Premières mesures de précaution suite aux soupçons de présence de dépôts de déchets de lindane à Hagenthal le Bas et Hagenthal le Haut. "Les dépôts de lindane sont un problème bien connu dans le Sud du Haut-Rhin, qui a mobilisé les services de l'Etat depuis le début des années 90. Entre 1965 et 1970, des résidus de fabrication de lindane provenant de l’usine PCUK (produit chimique Ugine Kuhlmann) installée à Huningue, ont été déchargés en vrac ou en fûts dans plusieurs sites, essentiellement dans le Haut-Rhin.

This news comes from the communities affected, not from the Aragon government, which, after acknowledging the situation, has still not established where the pollution has come from. Local people have said that this is not the first time that bans have been introduced concerning the Gállego river basin without any public announcements being made. Between 1975 and 1989 a company called Inquinosa dumped up to 160 000 tonnes of toxic waste in Sabiñánigo. This dumping went unchecked. Recently, 4 000 tonnes of toxic sludge were transferred from the landfill site at Sardas to the one at Bailín.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-005488-16 Current situation regarding lindane pollution in Spain As we have previously reported (in written questions P-007157/14 and E-008864/15), for at least 15 years the company Inquinosa was storing and unrestrictedly dumping waste from the production of lindane. Just like the heavily contaminated areas of Sabiñánigo (Huesca) ‐similar to the landfill site at Bailín‐ the reservoirs at Oiola (Vizcaya) and Borobia (Soria), the Gállego and Ebro river basins have been severely polluted by lindane. In response to complaints, on 15 March Parliament's Committee on Petitions undertook to support measures to remedy the situation. Could the Commission give details of requests for funding from the competent local and regional authorities, as well as the Spanish State, for lindane decontamination? Does the Commission believe this to be compatible with the Water Framework Directive, among other legislation, given that the new Ebro river basin management plan was also supposed to be submitted by 22 March 2016?

Cad. Saúde Pública, Rio de Janeiro, 18(2):379-402, mar-abr, 2002 On the rumors about the silent spring. Review of the scientific Endocrine system and pesticides Experimental studies Reproductive effects of pesticides have received special attention among the investigators. The discovery that organochlorines, such as hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) g- and d-isomers, dichlorodiphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) isomers p,p'-DDT and o,p'-DDT, its p,p'-DDE derivative, methoxychlor (or dianisyl-trichloroethane, a structural analogue of DDT), dieldrin, and pentachlorophenol, as well as atrazine, a widely used nitrogen herbicide, bind in vitro to the rat androgen receptor, significantly inhibiting the specific binding of [3H]5 a-dihydroxytestosterone (DHT) (Kelce et al., 1995), further fostered research on the issue. Such an anti-androgen effect was mostly prominent for p,p'-DDE (Fent, 1997; Kelce et al., 1995). Pesticides may interfere with sexual hormones also through indirect non receptorial mechanisms (Fent, 1997).

HARVARD GAZETTE 30/03/15 Pesticides result in lower sperm counts Men who ate fruits and vegetables with higher levels of pesticide residues — such as strawberries, spinach, and peppers — had lower sperm counts and lower percentages of normal sperm than those who ate produce with lower residue levels, according to a new study by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. It is the first study to look at the connection between exposure to pesticide residues from fruits and vegetables and semen quality. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001726-17 River basin management plans and priority substances: lindane and HCH In January 2016 the Spanish Government gave the go-ahead to the revision of the river basin management plans (RBMP) of the 12 intercommunal river basin districts, which are drawn up in accordance with Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC. The RBMP must ensure compliance with environmental objectives, including action plans to eliminate priority substances and priority hazardous substances, which have been mandatory since 2012. Both lindane and HCH are substances considered to be a priority and have been totally banned within the EU(1); despite this, these substances have been springing up in various parts of the Basque Autonomous Community, such as the River Zadorra (Ebro basin), the Ángela stream (Oiola reservoir) and other tributaries of the Ibaizabal (Eastern Cantabrian basin). However, no action plans have been adopted with a view to eliminating them.
