Pesticide Residues in Conventional and Organic Farming Systems in Europe
Pesticide Residues in Conventional and Organic Farming Systems in Europe

March 8, 2021

Erin Pyne has co-authored a recent journal article published in Environmental Pollution entitled "Cocktails of pesticide residues in conventional and organic farming systems in Europe – Legacy of the past and turning point for the future" The article includes work she completed as part of her master’s thesis. The research group was interested in measuring ‘cocktails’ of contaminants in soil rather than acutely toxic concentrations of a single compound. For a regulation or risk assessment to be holistic, regulators should consider conditions that more closely mirror what is observed in the field.  The full article can be accessed here - https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0269749121004073?via%3Dihub
