The monographs in this volume summarize the safety data on eight pesticides that could leave residues in food commodities. These pesticides are bifenthrin, cadusafos, chlorothalonil, chlorpyrifos-methyl, cycloxydim, fluopicolide, metaflumizone and spirodiclofen. The data summarized in the toxicological monographs served as the basis for the acceptable daily intakes and acute reference doses that were established by the Meeting.

This volume and previous volumes of JMPR toxicological evaluations, many of which were published in the FAO Plant Production and Protection Paper series, contain information that is useful to companies that produce pesticides, government regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.
