German Monitoring of Plant Protection Products in Small Streams

The mostly insufficient ecological status of surface waters is most often explained by habitat degradation and excessive nutrient input. But what role do plant protection products play in this context? In the Monitoring of Small Streams (Kleingewässermonitoring - KgM), the influence of plant protection products on small and medium-sized streams and resulting ecological impacts are investigated on a globally unique scale.
