Microplastics in Agriculture and Food Science: Methods for Identification and Remediation presents fundamental insights into the sources of microplastics and their impact on important resources – agricultural, food, and environmental. Including insights into these highly related fields, the book is the first to enable cross- and multi-disciplinary understanding and application.

Microplastics are the tiny particles created during plastic production as well as those particles remaining when plastic degrades and breaks down. They are sometimes difficult to identify, and the methods for qualifying and classifying them are not always clear despite the importance of their recognition and remediation.

With insights on analytical methods including the challenges, Microplastics in Agriculture and Food Science addresses microplastics from the farm to the food pyramid, highlighting the issues they raise and the options for removing them. Written by a global team of experts, this volume will contribute to the further understanding and addressing of this increasing global challenge.
