Abstract

In 1998, the Danish Government initiated the Danish Pesticide Leaching Assessment Programme (PLAP), an intensive monitoring programme aimed at evaluating the leaching risk of pesticides under field conditions. The first phase of the programme from 1998–2001 was funded by the Danish Government, while a two-year prolongation from 2002–2003 was funded by the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

This report presents the results of the monitoring period May 1999–June 2001. The report must be considered preliminary as the monitoring period is too short to fully evaluate the leaching risk of all applied pesticides. Preliminary results for three of the monitoring sites covering part of the monitoring period (May 1999–June 2000) have been reported previously (Kjær et al., 2001) and the present report should therefore be seen as a continuation of that report.
