- Pesticide risk mitigation by vegetated treatment systems: a meta-analysisSebastian Stehle
Institute of Environmental Sciences, Univ Koblenz Landau, Landau, Germany
J Environ Qual 40:1068-80. 2011..We conclude that VTSs are a suitable and effective risk mitigation strategy for agricultural nonpoint source pesticide pollution of surface waters. Further research is needed to improve their overall efficacy in retaining pesticides...
