In 1998, the Danish Parliament initiated the Danish Pesticide Leaching Assessment Programme (PLAP), which is an intensive monitoring programme aimed at evaluating the leaching risk of pesticides under field conditions. The Danish Government funded the first phase of the programme from 1998 to 2001. The programme has now been prolonged three times, initially with funding from the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries for the period 2002 to 2009, and presently with funding from the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the period 2010 to 2018. Additionally, funding for establishing a new test field (with a basal till overlaying chalk) designated to be included in the monitoring programme for 2016-2018 was provided in the Danish National Budget for the fiscal year of 2015. The establishment of said new test field was, however, delayed and not initiated until the autumn of 2016. Therefore, the present report does not include any data from this field. A separate report with the title “Characterization and monitoring design of the Lund PLAP-field” will, however, be published during autumn 2017. In April 2017, PLAP received founding until 2021 via the Pesticide Strategy 2017-2021 set by the Danish Government.
