Danish EPA | Pesticide leaching from golf course areas

Your substances


A new study shows how two pesticides behave in soil on golf courses.

The study was carried out by researchers from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the University of Copenhagen. The results show that the herbicide MCPA behaves in the same way in soil from fairways as it does in agricultural soil. In the case of approvals of pesticides, the assessment of the risk of leaching to the groundwater is made on the basis of studies on agricultural land.
