Co-promotor: dr X Yang and dr K Atreya
Chemical pesticides are used in agriculture to protect crops from pests and diseases. My PhD thesis presents a perspective of pesticide use among Nepalese farmers and pesticide retailers. Furthermore, the thesis identifies pesticide residues in Nepalese vegetables and their soils and assesses health and environmental risk.
