Nammalwar, P (1984) Pesticides pollution in marine environment. Science Reporter, 21 (9). pp. 496-498.



A number of pesticides are used in India and demand for them is on increase. It is estimated that there is a 15% increase in the consumption of pesticides every year throughout the world. During the last ten years, the use of DDT alone in India has increased nearly four folds. It is estimated that DDT and BHe requirements during 1985-86 would be about twenty thousand tonnes and ten thousand tonnes respectively, twice the present requirement.
