The Cropsys team designs field monitoring strategies and sets-up monitoring equipment to assess the concentrations of plant protection products in surface water and groundwater.
Risk assessments of plant protection products leaching to groundwater greatly benefits from having a groundwater-depth tool. It enables each farmer to see whether his/her fields are in vulnerable zones for the leaching of plant protection products to groundwater.
The Cropsys team helped to develop the PERSAM (Persistance in Soil Analytical Model) tool for the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to predict environmental concentrations of plant protection products in soils, in accordance with the guidelines from the experts of the EFSA Pesticide Panel.
