Renja Bereswill, Martin Streloke and Ralf Schulz Risk mitigation measures for diffuse pesticide entry into aquatic ecosystems: Proposal of a guide to identify appropriate measures on a catchment scale Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management 10

Version of Record online: 24 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ieam.1517

Key Points

  • A method for identifying measures to reduce pesticide entries into aquatic ecosystems via spray drift and runoff is presented: Based on a survey of exposure-relevant landscape parameters, a set of risk mitigation measures focusing on the specific situation of pollution of a water body catchment can be identified.
  • An overview of the effectiveness, feasibility, and acceptability of risk mitigation measures included in the guide (in total 18) is presented.
  • The present guide presents a step toward the practical implementation of risk mitigation measures for reducing pesticide entry in aquatic ecosystems.
