An innovative LIFE Environment project has created a critical mass of expertise in point source pollution from European plant protection products and resulted in new Best Management Practices guidelines on the topic, which have been widely promoted across the EU's agricultural sector.

Europe's farmers use a vast array of different agro-chemicals to protect their products from pests, weeds and diseases. Many of these Plant Protection Products (PPSs) are applied by use of spraying systems and the process can lead to unintended negative impacts as PPPs leach or run-off into ground and surface waters.
