PRIMET version 2.0, technical description and manual : a decision support system for assessing Pesticide RIsks in the tropics to Man, Environment and Trade

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Pesticide exposure via for instance spray drift or runoff to surface water, accumulation in the topsoil, and leaching to groundwater potentially affects organisms in water, in and around soil and on plants and might also pose risks to humans via dietary exposure, in case they consume contaminated products like groundwater, macrophytes and fish. To estimate these risks at the household level the PRIMET Decision Support System was developed. PRIMET runs with a minimum of input data and is developed to be used in developing countries
