thesisposted on 2023-05-26, 21:05 authored by Dyson, David Hartnett
The subject is introduced with short reviews of the effects of pesticides in the environment, and of the fate of pesticides in the environment. A general review of the subject matter considers the magnitude and nature of the problem, methods of pesticide disposal appropriate in Tasmania, costs and legal aspects of disposal, and the effectiveness and effects of pesticide and container disposal. A detailed account of Tasmanian farmers' knowledge and practice of container and pesticide disposal is given, as well as some insight into farmer attitudes, and the magnitude of the problem in Tasmania. Implications of the study are discussed, and suggestions made for future research and action.
