Pesticide effects on non-target terrestrial plants at individual, population and eco-system level
A new report shows that herbicides can affect the flowering of weeds outside the treated field if, during spraying, even at low doses, the herbicides spread to areas outside the field.The purpose of the research project was to gain knowledge about the effects low doses of herbicides have on non-target plants, and the consequences this may have on plant communities and ecosystems in areas adjacent to treated fields.
Laboratory experiments indicated that low weed concentrations have significant effects on bio-mass, flowering, seed production and seed germination. There was a difference between the effects versus the ones.
