Abstract/Contents:"Some pesticides are highly biologically active and may harm aquatic life if they enter water. Pesticides may reach water via spray drift, surface run-off, movement through the soil and soil erosion. One way of reducing the amount of pesticide entering water, particularly from spray drift, is by the use of buffer zones or no-spray zones. This paper describes the current scheme for buffer zones in the UK and proposals for the introduction of a scheme of Local Environmental Risk Assessment for Pesticides (LERAP). It also discusses further ways in which LERAP may be developed and alternative methods of providing the necessary protection of the aquatic environment."
