Actually they used toxic chemicals for insect control long before WWI
The Spokane Valley here in Washington State, where there was once
thousands acres of apple orchards along the Spokane River, has a problem
with high levels of residual arsenic in the soil due to it being used on
crops as pest control.
If you go and read the old 19th century orchard manuals on Google Books,
the chemicals they suggest using and the schedules makes todays
insecticides and modern farming practices seem quite benign in comparison.
