Soil persistence evaluation of biopesticide formulations

Soil persistence evaluation of biopesticide formulations

Published on

Efficacy is certainly the main factor to be considered when marketing a plant protection product, but not the only one. The persistence in the different elements of the environment (soil, plant, surface water and groundwater. Etc.) is also an important factor: it determines the environmental impact of the product and, sometimes, can influence its effectiveness. Determining the persistence of products in the soil is especially important in the case of those that are directed at pathogens that...
