Quantification of the future impact of agricultural pesticides to the groundwater resources

Project Details


The overall purpose of the project is to improve the understanding of the fate of selected pesticide residues (PRs) in soil and groundwater systems. This is done by quantifying the concentration levels of agricultural PRs in soil and groundwater, determine contaminant mass discharge (CMD) to the groundwater resource, and by estimating the duration of future impact on the groundwater resource.
