ACCELERATED DEGRADATION OF SOIL APPLIED PESTICIDES

Objective



The main objective of this proposal is to facilitate the coordination of individual specialist national studies on the agronomic, chemical and microbiological aspects of the accelerated degradation of soil applied pesticides. It has been established that accelerated degradation my be limiting pesticide performance in a number of countries. Specific aims of the proposal include :

- systematic survey of changes in soil laboratory degradation properties;
- correlation of pesticide behaviour in and efficiency under field conditions;
- exchange information on development of diagnostic systems and
predictive methods;
- disseminate results. A total of 9 EC countries are included.
