Pesticide Risk Mapping and Catchment Interventions - Phase 2
Pesticide risk maps for mobile herbicides (applied to arable and grassland) and metaldehyde (applied to arable land only), covering much of the UK at a field level, have been produced. These have been incorporated into new software tools for use of these risk maps in both a planning and operational sense. The software solution development and roll out comprised various complementary components and catered for water companies with and without access to desktop ArcGIS ie: Desktop ArcGIS mapping tool for spatial and non-spatial data management or a standalone WinForms desktop tools for data management in companies without access to ArcGIS; Microsoft (MS) Excel based desktop tools for reporting, planning and costing; MS Excel based field risk calculator. An accompanying survey of intervention effectiveness studies/trials within this AMP period allowed for the potential to improve default values built into the software as well as promote awareness of activities within the industry.
