Integrated Approaches to Assess Indicators of the Effectiveness of Pesticide Management Practices



(Research Project D5-20-35)

The overall objective of this project is to establish laboratory capacity and indicators to assess the effectiveness of good agricultural practices at catchment scale.

Expected outcomes of the project are:

  • To establish and operate cost-effective and sustainable quality monitoring schemes for surface water, including particulate matter.
  • To establish a mechanism to ³feed back² the results of laboratory analysis to the primary producers community/extension services.
  • To exchange information and to pursue horizontal cooperation among countries in terms of harmonized analytical methods and water monitoring schemes.
