Emerging Contaminants: Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment provides a thorough, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary overview of the many categories of emerging pollutants, including pharmaceuticals, insecticides, personal care items, and industrial chemicals, that are currently impacting the environment. With insights into the exposure associated consequences on crops and edible plants, this book is designed to enable foundational understanding as the basis for future research, as well as providing practical application guidance in current environments.

Water resource shortages, declining arable land, environmental contamination with different exiting or ECs, shortcomings in the procedures for protecting cultivated land, and inefficiencies in the management of land tenure rights continue to pose challenges for agricultural sustainable development around the world. This book focuses on the impacts of ECs on sustainable agricultural production and explores possible response approaches.

Following an introduction to environmental contaminants, this book discusses their fate in soils, presents the most up-to-date analytical methods for detecting them in different environmental matrices, and addresses current regulatory restrictions. Finally, this book ends with a chapter dedicated to conclusions and future perspectives.

Emerging Contaminants is an ideal resource for researchers and professionals from a variety of sciences including agricultural, plant, and environmental.
