Agriculture and surface waters – Possible solutions to current challenges

September 5, 2017, 9.00 am - 5.00 pm

Empa-Akademie, Dübendorf

Plant protection products are increasingly being found in our surface waters. This has led to political initiatives, such as the development of a National Action Plan for Plant Protection Agents. In light of these developments, , this Info Day will focus on the latest insight into the impact of agriculture on water bodies. Additionally, talks by representatives from Federal Office for Agriculture (FOAG) and Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) highlight what measures in particular would promote the productivity of Swiss agriculture while at the same time maintaining the health of our surface waters.

Managed by: Dr Christian Stamm, Dr Pascal Zaffarano (FOAG), Dr Anne Dietzel
