KNM webinar “Pesticides in Soils”

Practical information

  • 10 June 2021
  • 12:00-13:00
  •  Online

Pesticides are used to control pests and with that protect crops. However, pesticides can also adversely affect non-target organisms such as bees and can end up in soils where they pose a risk for the ecosystem.

To learn more on these adverse effects, KNM has organized an online webinar called “Pesticides in Soils”. Three key note speakers will give a presentation:

  • Prof. Dr. Violette Geissen (SLM-WUR): How can we estimate the real risks related to pesticide cocktails in the environment?
  • Vera Felix da Graça Silva (PhD candidate SLM-WUR): Pesticide residues in European agricultural soils – a hidden reality unfolded.
  • Jenneke van Vliet (Centre for Agriculture and Environment): The Environmental Yardstick for Pesticides.


This is one out of a series of webinars which are organized by the KNM. Regularly check the website for other webinars and activities.
