This review aims to give an overview of the significance of pyrimidine derivatives in crop protection. The main herbicidally, fungicidally and insecticidally active pyrimidine classes are presented, together with their synthetic routes, their modes of action and their biological efficacies. Quinazolines and other bicyclic pyrimidine derivatives are also covered.
