Ms. Kunadt’s doctoral work focuses on the history of the herbicide atrazine that quickly became the mainstay of industrial corn production after its release to the world market in 1958/59. The project analyses atrazine’s use and regulation—because of its residues in ground and drinking water—in the United States and West Germany, 1958-1991.
