Pre-screening sampling activities
9 to 23 November 2020

Case study site (CSS) data is crucial to define the list of compounds for the project and to start the analytical work preparations. This starts with WP2 which involves a relatively wide range of active substances and metabolites. At a later stage, based on the outcome of WP2 analyses, sub-selections will be made for further work (including mixtures) within WP3 and WP4. 

CSS-leaders were asked to collect a few samples from conventional farms for a pre-screen field testing, i.e. untargeted pesticide residues analyses. Soil, freshwater sediment, household dust and stable dust were collected in all the 11 case study sites and send to Wageningen for analysis.
