Talking is like plqying on the harp; there is as milch in Iqying the hands on the strings to stop their vibration as in twanging them to bring Ollt their mllsic.

INTRODUCTION

There exists a debate among people of differing walks of life about pesticide use and the sustainability of agriculture. In this chapter, we take the first step towards unravelling the stakeholder dialogue that surrounds the pesticide issue. Our motive is to identify and scrutinize innovations within the rigours of sustainability. Gaining an understanding of the underlying social patterns among stakeholders can lead to sustainable innovations that increasingly satisfy the public dialogue that surrounds the pesticide debate.
