Chemical control has been the pillar in protecting crops from pests, diseases and weeds for forty years, but is now under attack from recent regulations restricting the use of pesticides. This raises numerous questions addressed in this work from both technical and human viewpoints based on actual cases.

This interdisciplinary summary analyses how the organisation and rules of the agri-food system are holding back the emergence of alternative solutions. It emphasises taking the dynamics of change of farmers into account and the need for coordinated adaptation of all public and private players. Its authors make a few suggestions to stimulate these transitions. This work has been written by a group of authors specialising in crop protection, agronomists, ecologists, lawyers, economists and sociologists united under the GéDuPIC project financed by the National Research Agency (ANR) from 2007 to 2010.

The book is intended for farmers and also for anyone involved in the agricultural, consultancy, research and distribution sectors and those responsible for public policies.
