The Pesticide Scorecard
Weber, Jerome B.
Environmental Science and Technology, 11, 8, 756-761, Aug 77
A scheme for comparing the relative toxicities and environmental safety of agricultural pesticides is presented. It is based on the sum of four key factors: (1) oral toxicity to rats, (2) oral toxicity to fish, (3) longevity, and (4) bioaccumulation. Thirty-one pesticides are ranked by these factors. The ranking indicates that new pesticides are safe. (AJ)
