Plant Protection Products (PPPs)

Plant protection products continue to be important in modern plant protection strategies. Their use is indicated where other measures cannot adequately ensure the protection of crops from harmful organisms. We, the ‘Plant Protection Products – Impact and Assessment’ Research Group (RG PPP) investigate the behaviour and impacts of plant protection products (PPPs) in the environment, assess PPP risks and evaluate how alternative plant protection strategies, risk-mitigating measures and new technologies affect PPP input into the environment.
