Agriculture and  surface waters – Possible solutions to  current challenges

05 September 2017 - 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.
