Corrosion is ubiquitous and ravages all sectors of world economies of which agricultural industries are not immune. Techniques abound to stop corrosion theoretically and practically however, human errors and over enthusiastic application of available methods of protection have reduced their applications to practical reduction of corrosion rates of materials of construction. This review highlights chemicals and agricultural wastes which enhance corrosion rates of materials of construction and practical ways of reducing their effects.
