The Plant Protection Database (formerly known as CABPESTCD)
provides access to international scientific literature relating to weeds, pathogens and pests (insects, mites, slugs, snails and vertebrates) of crops, forest trees and plant products, and their control. All kinds of pesticides used in this context, their synthesis, chemistry, formulations, safety and non-target effects are also included.
Compiled by subject specialists at CABI Publishing, the Plant Protection Database
contains more than 810,000 abstracts and citations, with 25,000 records added annually. Containing over 30 years of research from over 75 countries it provides an ideal source for professionals and students requiring an international perspective on the wealth of information available on crop protection, pesticide research, and the agricultural sciences.
The Plant Protection Database is available on CD-ROM (updated quarterly) and on the Internet. It utilizes the popular SilverPlatter Information Retrieval System (SPIRS), providing the tools needed to obtain accurate and comprehensive search results.
