Project Details


In this subproject we investigated the retention, solubility and degradation of linuron, metributzin and fluatzinam in soils incubated continously at +5, -7 and in cycles +5/-7 C. The aim was to study the fate of these pesticides under contrasting winter conditions. Also various extractions procedures and their relevance in monitoring programs were compared.
