    Abstract

    The Dutch Environmental Indicator for plant protection products (NMI) is a software package used for calculating the potential environmental impact of plant protection products, which are used in agriculture. The software package can be used for calculations at the regional and national scale, amongst other for calculations for the Environmental Balance of the Netherlands and the Emission Registration. It is foreseen that the software package will be used in the evaluation of the current policy on plant protection products. This report gives an overview of input data and calculation procedures used to estimate the emissions and potential impacts of these products
