The Impact of Pesticides on Soil Fertility and Health


Plant-Protection Products (PPPs) are used worldwide. We still do not know much about whether PPPs have a negative impact on soil life and soil fertility. Recent research has demonstrated that a broad spectrum of PPP residues are detectable in the soil. In this project, we investigate whether PPPs have a negative effect on important soil functions and on soil life, and how these can be assessed.
