This book, as the initial part of a broader project, aimed to collect background data about pesticide use in the West Bank. In line with international norms, results have shown that pesticide usage is greater in areas of intensive and high value crop cultivation. More pesticides are used for crops grown under plastic than for those grown in open irrigation systems. The paper reveals widespread problems in both usage and disposal of pesticides.
The book is available at ARIJ Resource Center.
