Prevention and Disposal of Obsolete Unwanted Pesticide Stocks in Africa and Near East Prevention and Accumulation of Obsolete Pesticide Stocks Disposal of Bulk Quantities of Obsolete Pesticides in Developing Countries Pesticide Storage and Sto
FAO has produced five useful publications relating to obsolete pesticides. Two result from consultative meetings (held in 1994 and 1996) on 'Prevention and Disposal of Obsolete and Unwanted Pesticide Stocks in Africa and Near East'. Three manuals present provisional guidelines on the 'Prevention and Accumulation of Obsolete Pesticide Stocks', 'Disposal of Bulk Quantities of Obsolete Pesticides in Developing Countries' and 'Pesticide Storage and Stock Control'. This last is of particular interest to the small farmer or even village councils. It provides simple, straightforward instructions that are accompanied by many helpful illustrations and is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic. The documents may be downloaded (mostly PDF format) from the FAO Website: http://www.fao. org/waicent/FaoInfo/Agricult/AGP/AGPP/Pesticid/Disposal/default.htm or obtained directly from: Alemayehu Wodageneh, Coordinator, Prevention and Disposal, Obsolete Pesticides Africa and the Near East, FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, Italy.
