AWARE-ASSESSING THE FATE OF PESTICIDES AND WATERBORNE CONTAMINANTS IN AGRICULTURAL CROPS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS

Two main issues have a high impact in the agricultural food production: the lack of water resources in some European countries and pollution with pesticides. The use of pesticides for pest control is a common practice. However, the usage patterns of water among European countries differ, e.g. Scandinavian countries rely on natural precipitation while many South European countries are facing difficulties in meeting the water demand of crops. In some European countries the use of treated wastewater has been implemented for irrigation when natural freshwater sources are scarce. More
