    Pesticide use and off-site risk assessment: a case study of glyphosate fate in Chinese Loess soil

    Xiaomei Yang

    Abstract: Repeated applications of pesticide may contaminate the soil and water, threatening their quality within the environmental system and beyond it through water erosion related processes and leaching. Taking into account the situation of intense farming, pesticide use and erosion in China, and in the loess area in particular, this study aims to further the science of pesticide risk assessment by increasing the understanding of the fate of glyphosate and its main metabolite AMPA while also assessing their risks related to soil erosion in Chinese loess soil. Four main objectives are conducted:

    1) Assessment of farmers’ knowledge and awareness of pesticide use in the Wei River catchment

    In this study, we presented the information for the knowledge and awareness of pesticide risks via face-to-face interview among farmers (209) and retailers (20) in two rural regions (Qianyang County (S1) and Chencang County (S2)) of the Wei River catchment in China where the modes of farming and the state of erosion are very different. The results showed that farmers learned about the use and risk related to of pesticide use mainly by oral communication (p<0.01), rather than by introduction labelled on pesticide package bag/bottle and media tools (TV/newspaper/Internet/books). Protective measures were inadequate and washing hands (>70%) was the most common mode of personal hygiene after spraying, comparing to wearing masks, showering, and changing clothes. Regarding to dealing with the packages or containers of pesticide, farmers dumped them directly onto the land or into water, and over 85% of farmers claimed to use illegal pesticides. Compared to farmers, pesticide retailers were well-informed and highly conscious of their responsibility for the safe use of pesticides. Educational programmes targeted to age groups, proper disposal of pesticide waste, and sufficient supervision from authorities should consequently be considered for improving the levels of knowledge and awareness of the dangers of pesticides to human health and environmental pollution in the Wei River catchment, China.

    2) Investigation of off-site transport of glyphosate and AMPA by runoff and erosion in Chinese loess soil

    In this study, we assessed the short-term transport (1h duration, 1 mm min-1 rainfall) of glyphosate and its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) related to erosion and runoff on bare loess soil with different slopes (10° and 20°)and application rates (3.6 kg ha-1 and 7.2 kg ha-1) in hydraulic flumes. Significant power and exponent function described a significantly negative relation between rainfall duration and the content of glyphosate and AMPA (p<0.01) in runoff and suspended load, respectively. The transport rate of glyphosate (including AMPA) by runoff and suspended load was approximately 4% and 10% of the applied amount, respectively indicating that it mainly underlies particulate transport. The glyphosate and AMPA content in the flume soil at the end of the experiment (after 1h) decreased significantly with depth (p<0.05), and 72, 2, and 3% of the applied glyphosate (including AMPA) remained in the 0-2, 2-5, and 5-10 cm soil layers, respectively. Thus, the risk of leaching was low. In view of loss of 14 % of the initially applied glyphosate after 1 h, “buffer zone”, referred as the protection area for ecosystem discharge between farming land and public rivers, is strongly recommended, especially in regions where rain-induced soil erosion is common.

    3) Investigation of the on-site fate of glyphosate and AMPA formation in Chinese loess soil

    In this study, we observed glyphosate decay, erosion and runoff related transport of glyphosate and AMPA at different slopes (10° and 20°) and application rates (3.6 kg ha-1 and 7.2 kg ha-1) under field condition during 35 d, September-October in 2012 (16.8±2.1°C with 35 mm rainfall in total) and July-August in 2013 (27 ± 2.3°C with 74 mm rainfall in total). The initial glyphosate decayed rapidly (half-life of 3.5 d) in the upper 2 cm of soil following a first-order rate of decay. AMPA content in the 0-2 cm soil layer correspondingly peaked 3 d after glyphosate application and then gradually decreased. The residues of glyphosate and AMPA decreased significantly with soil depth (p<0.05) independently of the slope inclination and application rate. About 0.36% of the glyphosate initially applied was transported off-site plots after one erosive rain 2 days after the application. Glyphosate and AMPA concentration in runoff were low while the contents in the sediment was much higher than in the upper 2 cm of the soil. This suggested that even though the transported glyphosate is limited, the off-site risk of glyphosate and AMPA is high. Consequently, a realistic erosion-pesticide model should be developed that can simulate the particulate-facilitated transport of glyphosate and its off-site risks involving decay processes.

    4) Off-site risk assessment of particle-facilitated pesticide transport related to erosion

    In this study, we have developed a parsimonious integrative model of pesticide displacement by runoff and erosion that explicitly accounts for water infiltration, erosion, runoff, and pesticide transport and degradation in soil. The conceptual framework was based on broadly accepted assumptions such as the convection-dispersion equation and lognormal distributions of soil properties associated with transport, sorption, degradation, and erosion. To illustrate the concept, a few assumptions are made with regard to runoff in relatively flat agricultural fields: dispersion is ignored and erosion is modelled by a functional relationship. A sensitivity analysis indicated that the total mass of pesticide associated with soil eroded by water scouring increased with slope, rain intensity, and water field capacity of the soil. The mass of transported pesticide decreased as the micro-topography of the soil surface became more distinct. The timing of pesticide spraying and rate of degradation before erosion negatively affected the total amount of transported pesticide. The mechanisms involved in pesticide displacement, such as runoff, infiltration, soil erosion, and pesticide transport and decay in the topsoil, were all explicitly accounted for, so the mathematical complexity of their description can be high, depending on the situation.

    Overall, the outcome of this study indicates that it is urgent to improve farmers knowledge and awareness on pesticide use in order to reduce pesticide risks before they are applied in environmental system. The rapid decay of glyphosate to AMPA in loess soil suggests that on-site risks of glyphosate is mainly related to AMPA, especially under warmer climatic conditions. The off-site transport of glyphosate in our study was about 14% of the applied dose after 1 h of rainfall indicating that the off-site risks of glyphosate should be taken into account in regions highly prone to soil erosion. The concept of particulate transport elaborated in objective 4 should be incorporated in existing erosion models, such as LISEM, to predict off-site effects of glyphosate applications.

    Residuen van gewasbeschermingsmiddelen op vruchten zijn in toenemende mate een probleem voor de afzet. Door retailers worden steeds hogere eisen gesteld aan het aantal verschillende residuen dat mag worden aangetroffen en aan het residuniveau dat geaccepteerd wordt (bovenwettelijke eisen). In kleinfruit (m.n. rode bessen) zijn hierdoor in de afgelopen jaren problemen ontstaan, omdat veel verschillende actieve stoffen in de residu-analyses worden teruggevonden, en de hoeveelheid residu soms de MRL-waarde nadert. Om aan de eisen van de retail te kunnen voldoen is het noodzakelijk dat het aantal stoffen dat bij residu-analyses wordt aangetoond vermindert én het residuniveau wordt verlaagd. Tevens werden bijbehorende spuitschema’s geanalyseerd.

    Het gebruik van bestrijdingsmiddelen voor de productie van agrarische gewassen brengt het risico met zich mee dat deze in aangrenzende waterlichamen, zoals sloten, vijvers, meren en/of beken, terecht kunnen komen. Er zijn verschillende manieren waarop bestrijdingsmiddelen in deze waterlichamen terecht kunnen komen, bijvoorbeeld door bovengrondse afstroming op hellende agrarische velden, door overwaaiing wanneer de toepassing van bestrijdingsmiddelen dichtbij wateroppervlakten plaatsvindt of door uitspoeling van bestrijdingsmiddelen naar het oppervlakte- of grondwater. Omdat bestrijdingsmiddelen zijn ontwikkeld voor het aantasten van voor gewassen schadelijke biota, kunnen deze chemische gewasbeschermingsproducten ook schadelijk zijn voor verwante (aquatische) organismen.

    The market for greenhouse tomatoes requires a production system with lower use and risks of pesticides. These requirements culminate in the tight restrictions on residues for German retailers, both in number and in levels of residues. Germany is an important import country for tomatoes because of the size of the German market. Furthermore, exports to Germany entail a price premium. For that reason the revenues of IPM in greenhouse tomatoes are more important than the costs. Consequently, the experiments in task 3 and the ex post assessment in task 4 of work package 7 of the Pure programme should focus on IPM strat egies by which the German residue restrictions can be respected.

    De doelstelling van het rapportage-project was: - Op basis van bestaande kennis uit binnen- en buitenland (metingen, modelstudies) inzichtelijk maken in hoeverre oppervlakkige afspoeling van (vrijwel) vlakke percelen verantwoordelijk kan zijn voor (piek) belasting van oppervlaktewater; - Inzichtelijk maken in hoeverre een vergelijking met andere emissieroutes mogelijk is en, zo mogelijk, deze vergelijking inzichtelijk maken; - Verkenning van de mate van overeenstemming tussen de uitgangspunten van de modelmatige berekening van afspoeling en de situatie op representatieve praktijksituaties in Nederland. Wanneer relevante afwijkingen verwacht worden, deze benoemen; - Vaststellen of er zicht is op effectieve maatregelen om oppervlakkige afspoeling tegen te gaan. Dit kunnen bestaande of nieuwe maatregelen zijn. Hiervoor is een korte internationale literatuurscan uitgevoerd naast een verkenning om te bepalen hoe vaak afspoeling van water kan optreden op landbouwgronden in het vlakke deel van Nederland. Voor dit laatste onderdeel zijn neerslaggegevens van 30 jaar geanalyseerd op de frequentie van optreden van buien voor 3 meteostations en zijn zand- en kleigronden gekarakteriseerd met hun infiltratiesnelheid.

    Pesticides are used in agriculture to protect crops from pests and diseases, with indiscriminate pesticide use having several adverse effects on the environment. In an era of an increasing public awareness on pesticides’ environmental spillovers, the EU is trying to update its pesticide policy by using economic incentives, aiming at reducing pesticide use and environmental spillovers. This dissertation focuses on assessing how pesticide use and its related environmental spillovers are affecting farmers’ production environment under a dynamic production setting, thus assisting policy makers in designing optimal pesticide policy tools.

    Voor het succesvol implementeren van een residuverwijderingsprototype in de huidige sorteerlijnen is het belangrijk dat tijdens het sorteerproces niet te veel schuim ontstaat in het sorteerwater en dat de concentratie van het gebruikte reducerend middel (VAM-Residuce) in het sorteerproces op peil gehouden kan worden. Een tweetal titratiemethodes en een schuim-onderdrukkende techniek zijn ontwikkeld om respectievelijk de concentratie VAM-Residuce te controleren en overmatige schuimvorming tijdens het sorteerproces tegen te gaan.

    Een behandelingstap met het reducerend middel VAM-Residuce geeft reeds veelbelovende resultaten op het gebied van residuvermindering op appel en peer maar deze techniek vergt verdere optimalisatie om de supermarkten tegemoet te kunnen komen. De activiteiten binnen dit onderzoek hebben zich gericht op het verbeteren van deze behandelingstap met additionele technieken. In 2011 zijn voornamelijk de technieken “Koude Plasma” en “Geëlektrolyseerd water” getest op hun residu reducerend vermogen. De koude plasma techniek blijkt niet geschikt te zijn om het niveau van gewasbeschermingsmiddelen effectief op hardfruit te verlagen. De test met geëlektrolyseerd water gaf geen éénduidige residuvermindering aan op Elstar appelen. Literatuur geeft aan dat deze techniek residu reducerend vermogen bezit.

    Het percentage groente- en fruitmonsters waarop in Nederland te veel resten van gewasbeschermingsmiddelen zijn aangetroffen, is tussen 2003 en 2010 met 70% gedaald. Daarnaast is de absolute hoeveelheid resten van gewasbeschermingsmiddelen op dit type voedsel verminderd. De meeste producten waarop resten zijn aangetroffen, zijn afkomstig uit het buitenland. Verder is de voedselveiligheid sinds 2003 verbeterd. Dit blijkt uit een evaluatie van het beleidsdoel voor voedselveiligheid, zoals geformuleerd in de nota Duurzame gewasbescherming van het ministerie van Landbouw, Natuur en Voedselkwaliteit (nu Economische Zaken, Landbouw en Innovatie). Het doel hiervan is het aantal overschrijdingen met 50% te verminderen.

    De nVWA en het RIVM doen al jaren onderzoek naar residuen van giftige stoffen op groenten en fruit. Uit onderzoek blijkt dat met name peuters en baby’s meer groenten en fruit binnenkrijgen dan eerder werd gedacht. Met meer groenten en fruit zouden ze ook meer residuen binnenkrijgen. Ernst Woltering van Wageningen Universiteit plaatst het één en ander in perspectief.

    Er is een grotere bewustwording bij de consumenten over de aanwezigheid van residuen op fruit. Dit als gevolg van aandacht voor dit thema in de media. Als reactie daarop hebben een aantal supermarkten hun normen aangescherpt. Het gebruik van gewasbescherming is echter noodzakelijk om aan de kwaliteitseisen te voldoen die de consument stelt. Het eenvoudig weglaten van bestrijdingsmiddelen zou leiden tot een grote toename van aantastingen van ziekten en plagen met grote verliezen tot gevolg. Daarom zal gekeken moeten worden naar mogelijkheden om met minder residu op het geconsumeerde fruit toch te komen tot hetzelfde kwaliteitsniveau. Een oplossing die mogelijk op korte termijn haalbaar is, is het versneld afbreken van residuen op de vrucht na bewaring.

    Greenport Boskoop is een boomkwekerij teeltcentrum van ca. 1100 ha, waarin ongeveer 720 bedrijven actief zijn. Uit metingen van het Hoogheemraadschap van Rijnland blijkt dat er geregeld te hoge concentraties gewasbeschermingsmiddelen en stikstof en fosfaat worden aangetroffen in het oppervlaktewater van Greenport Boskoop. De boomkwekerijsector wil samen met het Hoogheemraadschap van Rijnland werken aan een verbetering van de waterkwaliteit. Het project Netwerken aan Water, dat is uitgevoerd door DLV Plant en WUR-PPO, moet hiervoor handvaten bieden. In dit achtergrondrapport worden de beschikbare gegevens m.b.t de waterkwaliteit gepresenteerd om de betrokken partijen op de hoogte te stellen van de beschikbare informatie. Op deze wijze start iedereen vanaf hetzelfde vertrekpunt. In het rapport worden verschillende mogelijkheden beschreven om de milieubelasting van voedingstoffen en gewasbeschermingsmiddelen te verminderen. Veel van deze maatregelen zijn al onderzocht en bruikbaar voor de praktijk. In andere gevallen is aanvullend onderzoek nodig

    In alle waterstromen in een kas zijn gewasbeschermingsmiddelen aangetroffen. Als norm voor de waterstromen binnen de kas is de MTR (Maximaal Toelaatbaar Risico) voor oppervlaktewater genomen. Wanneer water met een concentratie aan middel boven de MTR wordt geloosd kan dit een probleem zijn voor de kwaliteit van het oppervlaktewater. Recirculeren is de beste oplossing, maar telers zijn dan afhankelijk van de kwaliteit van het water waarmee ze starten

    This report describes the evaluation of the 2006 proposal for the risk assessment of persistence of plant protection products in soil. The proposal considered three protection goals and proposed tiered assessment and decision schemes for each protection goal. The three schemes appeared to be consistent, both internally and with each other. It was found that both pore water concentrations and total content have to be considered in the soil risk assessment. The evaluation has been performed for five substances with all available information from both registration dossiers and open literature. Nevertheless, insufficient information was available to evaluate all aspects of the proposal. In practice this means that pesticide industry has to provide additional information for many dossiers. Furthermore, it was found that existing information often needs to be re-interpreted and a need for standardisation of evaluation of terrestrial (semi-)field experiments was observed. The proposal would require specific expertise and investments of evaluating authorities as well as stakeholders. To better understand fate and effects of persistent substances, it is recommended to investigate the behaviour of substances in the field over longer periods, to perform exposure concentration measurements while performing ecotoxicological tests, to develop protocols for testing effects on fungi, and to gain the necessary experience on the conduct and interpretation of (semi-)field studies with respect to the relation between exposure and effects of plant protection products.

    Voor dit rapport is een beperkt aantal contaminanten en micro-organismen in biologisch geproduceerde producten of productiewijzen bekeken. Resultaten zijn vervolgens vergeleken met die uit de gangbare landbouw. Aan de orde komen Mycotoxinen in tarwe; zware metalen en arseen in tarwe, sla, peen en aardappel, in varkensvlees en in eieren; nitraat in sla, peen en aardappel; residuen van pesticiden in tarwe, sla, peen en aardappel; microbiële besmetting van sla, varkens, melkvee, vleeskuikens en leghennen; residuen van antibiotica en coccidiostatica in varken, runderen en eieren en antibiotica-resistentie. Alhoewel een aantal resultaten wijst op verschillen tussen biologisch en gangbaar, betreft het hier een momentopname. In een aantal gevallen bevestigen de resultaten die van ander onderzoek, zoals de lagere nitraatgehaltes in biologische kropsla, geen verschillen in mycotoxine-gehaltes bij tarwe, minder Salmonella maar meer Campylobacter bij vleeskuikens en minder antibiotica-resistentie bij vleeskuikens. Voor nitraat in biologische peen zijn er aanwijzingen voor een trend naar verhoogde gehaltes. In andere gevallen moet vervolgonderzoek uitwijzen of er daadwerkelijk sprake is van een duidelijke trend, zoals bij de lagere incidentie van antibiotica-resistente bacteriën in biologische varkens en de lagere Salmonella- incidentie bij varkens van meer ervaren biologische bedrijven.

    The effects of a pesticide mixture (asulam, fluazinam, lambda-cyhalothrin, and metamitron) on aquatic ecosystems were investigated in 20 outdoor aquatic microcosms. Ten of the microcosms simulated mesotrophic aquatic ecosystems dominated by submerged macrophytes (Elodea). The others simulated eutrophic ecosystems with a high Lemna surface coverage (Lemna). This paper describes the fate of the chemicals as well as their effects on the growth of Myriophyllum spicatum and the periphytic algal community. In the Elodea-dominated microcosms significant increase in the biomass and alterations of species composition of the periphytic algae were observed, but no effect on M. spicatum growth could be recorded in response to the treatment. The opposite was found in the Lemna-dominated microcosms, in which decreased growth of M. spicatum was observed but no alterations could be found in the periphytic community. In the Elodea-dominated microcosms the species composition of the periphytic algae diverged from that of the control following treatment with 0.5% spray drift emission of the label-recommended rate (5% for lambda-cyhalothrin), while reduced growth of M. spicatum in the Lemna-dominated microcosms was recorded at 2% drift (20% for lambda-cyhalothrin). This study shows that the structure of the ecosystem influences the final effect of pesticide exposure.

    Regels worden strikter, meetnetten voor waterkwaliteit fijnmaziger en analyses van stoffen nauwkeuriger. De teler moet steeds vaker inzien dat oppervlaktewater wordt vervuild door teeltmaatregelen. Er kunnen allerlei maatregelen worden genomen om dit te voorkomen en bestrijdingsmiddelen op de plaats te houden waar ze worden gespoten. Spuittechniek, keuze van spuitdop en toepassing van luchtondersteuning, teelt- en spuitvrije stroken langs de sloot en natuurlijke of kunstmatige schermen langs oppervlakte water zijn mogelijkheden. Vooral teeltvrije stroken kunnen hoge kosten voor de teler met zich mee brengen.

    The impact of the insecticide lindane (%-hexachlorocyclohexane) on the clearance rate (CR) of Daphnia magna was investigated using artificial beads. CR (24-h EC50: 65 7g Lm1) was found to be a more sensitive endpoint than acute lethality for D. magna (48-h LC50: 516 7g Lm1). The onset of the effect was rapid; after 2 h of exposure to approximately 241 7g Lm1 of lindane a significant decrease in CR was observed. Daphnids recovered rapidly after transfer to clean water; after 24 h of exposure to approximately 250 7g Lm1 lindane, transfer into clean water resulted in recovery to 80% of control levels within 2 h and complete recovery within 24 h.

    Aquatic risk assessment of pesticides

    The first tier in the aquatic risk assessment procedure consists of a comparison between a Predicted Environmental Concentration (PEC) with a No Effect Concentration (NEC). A requirement for registration is that the PEC should not exceed the NEC. The NEC is calculated from the toxicity of the pesticide for defined standard test species (viz. algae Daphnia , fish) and an assessment factor, which accounts for potential differences between standard test species and indigenous species. The assessment factors used are 100 (to be multiplied with the acute EC50 of Daphnia and fish) or 10 (to be multiplied with the chronic NOEC of fish or EC50 of algae). Because this approach lacks ecological realism, the first aim of the present thesis was to validate the assessment factors used in the first tier by evaluating three chemicals with different modes of action (insecticide, herbicide, fungicide) as benchmark compounds.

    We compared the No Observed Effect Concentrations (NOECs), resulting from microcosm and mesocosm experiments using these compounds, with the NECs as used for the risk assessment procedure. Table 1 summarises the standards calculated from the first tier criteria set by the Uniform Principles (UP-standard), as well as the NOEC ecosystem for acute and chronic exposure regimes for the three substances. In addition, Table 1 lists the Dutch water quality standards. The assessment factors seem to protect the tested aquatic ecosystem against acute and chronic exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos and against chronic exposure to the herbicide linuron and the fungicide carbendazim (Table 1; chapters 2, 3 and 4). Dutch water quality standards for these three compounds were lower than the UP-standards and thus also seem to protect the aquatic ecosystems tested when exposed to individual compounds.

    A comparison between the UP-standards and the Lowest Observed Effect Concentration at the ecosystem level (LOEC ecosystem ) indicates that when the NEC is exceeded by a factor of 10, effects cannot be excluded in the case of chronic exposure. In the case of a single application of the insecticide chlorpyrifos, however, the assessment factor can be considered overprotective; an assessment factor of 10 instead of 100 would also seem to suffice. Two extensive literature reviews on the impact of insecticides and herbicides on aquatic microcosms and mesocosms also demonstrate that the first tier criteria of the Uniform Principles are generally adequate to protect different aquatic ecosystems from pesticide stress (Lahr et al., 1998; Van Wijngaarden et al., 1998). For compounds such as fungicides, however, hardly any information could be found in the open literature, so that validation of the assessment factors for these types of pesticide needs further attention.

    Table 1:Derived UP-standards, Dutch water quality standards and NOEC ecosystem observed in semi-field studies for the insecticide chlorpyrifos, the herbicide linuron and the fungicide carbendazim (all concentrations in µg/L). UP-standards were calculated from criteria set by the first tier of aquatic risk assessment. For references to toxicity values see Table 3 in chapter 1 of this thesis.

    Ecological effects and recovery

    One of the aims of the present thesis was to gain insight into long-term community responses and into the factors determining the recovery of affected populations after a single application of an insecticide in experimental ditches. As was expected from its mode of action, application of chlorpyrifos resulted in large adverse effects on arthropod taxa (chapter 2). Because this experiment was performed in relatively large, outdoor systems, the recovery of the affected populations could be investigated. The recovery of populations of individual species was highly dependent on their life-cycle characteristics, such as the number of generations per year, the presence of resistant life stages and the ability to migrate from one system to another. In chapter 2 this is illustrated by the responses of two mayflies, cladocerans and an amphipod. The mayflies Cloeon dipterum and Caenis horaria do not have life stages resistant to chlorpyrifos, but are able to migrate from one ditch to another. They are also almost equally susceptible to chlorpyrifos in the laboratory but showed a very different recovery pattern.

    The former species recovered within 12 weeks at the highest treatment level, whereas the latter species took 24 weeks to recover fully. This can be explained from the difference in the number of generations per year. C. dipterum has many generations per year and thus recolonises the ditch repeatedly, thus recovering as soon as the concentration of chlorpyrifos allows this. C. horaria , however, produces only one generation per year, so that recovery can only take place when the next generation recolonises the ditch. Unlike mayflies, Cladocerans are not able to migrate actively from one ditch to the other. They did, however, show a very fast recovery at the higher concentration (Chapter 2). This is possible because they have a short generation time and resistant life stages in the form of ephyppia. If a taxon is not able to recolonise an impacted system and does not have resistant life stages, the species can become extinct in isolated systems like the experimental ditches. This applies for the amphipod Gammarus pulex , which became extinct at the two highest concentrations and did not recover within the 55 week experimental period. No significant effects on the invertebrate community, with the exception of Gammarus, were found from week 24 after insecticide application onwards, suggesting recovery.

    As part of the third aim of the thesis, the long-term responses in ecosystem structure and functioning after chronic exposure to a herbicide and fungicide were studied in aquatic microcosms. The higher concentration of the photosynthesis-inhibiting herbicide linuron resulted in a decreased biomass of the macrophyte Elodea nuttallii and decreased abundance of most algal taxa (chapter 3). The dissolved oxygen and pH levels also decreased at lower pesticide concentrations as a consequence of inhibited photosynthesis. Although a decrease in the abundance of most algal taxa was observed after to the herbicide application, a net increase in chlorophyll-a was found for the phytoplankton, periphyton and neuston. This increase was completely caused by the green alga Chlamydomonas sp., which appeared to be relatively tolerant to linuron and also had the ability to develop a tolerance to relatively high concentrations within a week. As a result of this tolerance and the reduced competition for nutrients with macrophytes, the community in the microcosms shifted from macrophyte-dominated to an algae-dominated state, especially at the highest treatment level (150 µg/L). The Copepoda and Cladocera benefited from this increased food supply and showed elevated abundance values at the higher treatment levels. Some macrophyte-associated invertebrates decreased in abundance as a result of the decline of their habitat.

    The fungicide carbendazim, which belongs to the bendimidazoles, is known to adversely affect microorganisms and worms. This property explains its effects on the "worm-like" taxa of the Turbellaria and Oligochaeta, but could not explain its effects on invertebrate groups like Amphipoda, Gastropoda and Cladocera (chapter 4). Unlike the direct effects of chlorpyrifos and linuron, therefore those of carbendazim on freshwater populations could not be completely deduced from the latter's taxonomic relation with the pest organisms, carbendazim it is supposed to control. The fungicide appeared to have the mode of action of a biocide rather than a chemical with a specific mode of action. Due to the decline of many invertebrates and the concomitant reduction in grazing pressure, the chlorophyll-a level and the abundance values of some phytoplankton taxa increased at the two highest concentrations (330 and 1000 µg/L).

    The "eutrophication-like" consequences of insecticide contamination have also often been reported and discussed in the literature (e.g. DeNoyelles et al., 1994, Cuppen et al., 1995). The increased abundance of algae due to a decrease in susceptible herbivores is a commonly reported consequence of insecticide contamination (Van Wijngaarden et al., 1998).

    In the present thesis, the occurrence of herbicides in the aquatic ecosystem is regarded as an undesirable side effect of its use on land. However, herbicides are also deliberately released into aquatic ecosystems for the control of nuisance aquatic vegetation (Pieterse and Murphy, 1990). Aquatic weeds are most commonly removed using compounds with a mode of action specific to macrophytes. Since algae are relatively tolerant to these chemicals (Lahr et al., 1998), they may increase their biomass due to reduced competition for nutrients (Kobriae and Whyte, 1996). Terrestrial weeds are, in the Netherlands, usually controlled by means of photosynthesis-inhibiting herbicides (NEFYTO, 1996). Although their mechanism is different, chapter 3 shows that prolonged exposure to the photosynthesis-inhibiting herbicide linuron may also result in a shift from macrophyte dominance to plankton dominance. The review published by Lahr et al. (1998) shows that this may be true for photosynthesis-inhibiting herbicides in general.

    The effects of fungicides are largely unstudied, but chapter 4 indicates that fungicide contamination can also cause elevated algal densities. This means that all three pesticides can contribute to "eutrophication-like" effects, though the mechanisms differ. The significance of realistic concentrations of pesticides in causing symptoms of eutrophication in surface waters, however, largely remains to be investigated.

    Tools to evaluate microcosm and mesocosm experiments

    Semi-field experiments are usually evaluated at the taxon level. Since many species normally have low abundance values and/or show high variability (Van Wijngaarden et al., 1996), this approach has the great disadvantage that only a limited number of species can be properly analysed. This means that a substantial part of the information gathered is not used for the evaluation. This thesis presents a new multivariate tool for the analysis of treatment effects at the community level. Multivariate techniques have already been used for a long time in ecology to analyse the relation between communities and their environment. The most commonly used ordination technique is correspondence analysis, which is based on the bell-shaped unimodal model. This model fits in with the theory of the rise and fall in a preference of a species along an environmental gradient, described by their optimum and tolerance.

    Chapter 7 indicates why clustering and ordination based on correspondence analysis are not suitable for the analysis of the ecotoxicological data sets presented in this thesis. It argues that species normally have no optimum along the environmental axis of a stressor such as pesticides. Their response is more accurately described by a linear method; expected direct effects will increase with the concentration. On the basis of laboratory tests, this relation between the endpoint and the concentration of stressor is assumed to be sigmoid, and it is argued that a linear response model is a good approximation of this.

    Chapters 2 and 3 use Redundancy Analysis (RDA) to elucidate the effects of pesticides at the community level. RDA is the constrained version of the well-known ordination technique Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and is based on a linear response model (Jongman et al., 1995). In chapters 2 and 3 the analysis is constrained to the variance explained by treatment, time and their interaction. It was concluded that RDA successfully summarised the effects of a pesticide on a community in a single diagram, and is very useful especially when combined with Monte Carlo permutation tests for the determination of the significance of treatment effects. Kersting and Van den Brink (1997), however, found that output from RDA can sometimes result in very cluttered diagrams.

    Chapter 5 presents a new method, termed the Principal Response Curves, which overcomes this problem. PRC is based on RDA and extracts the first principal component from the treatment variance, by excluding from the analysis the variance explained by time as well as differences between replicates. It results in an easy-to-read diagram, showing the deviations of all treatments from the control in time. In contrast to most other techniques, it also allows a quantitative interpretation down to the species level. Chapter 6 introduces the rank 2 model of PRC, this means that after the extraction of the first basic response pattern, a second pattern is extracted, which expresses the most important deviation from the first response present in the data set. The second pattern is of particular importance if no single dominant response pattern is present in a data set but several sub-dominant ones occur. In chapter 6 this is illustrated by an analysis of the invertebrate and phytoplankton data sets of a microcosm experiment with two stressors, the insecticide chlorpyrifos and nutrient additions. This example shows that PRC is also able to summarise several different response patterns in two diagrams.

    Microcosm and mesocosm experiments are often said to be of limited value due to ecological variability and noise. From the experiments and statistical tools as described in this thesis we can conclude that despite the noise clear response patterns are revealed, if experiments are properly designed and analysed. Chapters 2, 3 and 4 illustrate that, even with a limited number of replicates, an ecological threshold level (e.g. NOEC ecosystem ) and an effect-chain covering different trophic levels can be obtained.

    Suggestions for future research

    In normal agricultural practice, protection of crops from pest organisms is not achieved by the application of a single compound; usually, several different compounds with different target organisms are used. Some pesticides are also administered repeatedly. The effects of combinations of pesticides on freshwater ecosystems are, however, largely unstudied (Hartgers et al., 1998). Therefore, it is important to develop criteria for the ecological risk assessment of mixtures of compounds, using realistic pesticide treatment regimes for particular crops.

    The problem of combination toxicity becomes even more complex when other substances used in agricultural areas, such as fertilisers, are taken into account. The combined effects of eutrophication and contaminant stress are largely unknown. It can be expected, however, that the trophic status of an ecosystem will alter the effects of pesticides (Chapter 6; Kramer et al., 1997).

    The ecological effect chain resulting from the experiments with the herbicide linuron and fungicide carbendazim demonstrated that microcosm and mesocosm experiments with pesticides as stressors can be very useful tools to investigate trophic interactions in aquatic ecosystems. The results of these experiments are currently being used to build a food-web model (Traas et al., 1998). Such models are considered to hold great promise for an improved understanding of ecosystem functioning and may eventually provide the ability to predict effects of contaminants at ecosystem level (Health Council of the Netherlands, 1997). The greatest obstacles that have to be overcome are the lack of solid data on parameter values (data on for instance maximum growth rate) and the lack of validation. This means that the further development of food web models require not only laboratory research on parameters values but also semi-field research for the collection of validation data sets (Health Council of the Netherlands, 1997).

    The modeling of direct effects and recovery patterns at the population level can be of great use for an assessment of the risks and a ranking of the effects of pesticides. For the future, modeling treatment effects and recovery patterns may be of great value as a research tool but also as a predictive tool. Models have the advantage that they allow integration of ecological and ecotoxicological knowledge, something that was largely absent from ecotoxicology until a few years ago. Development of these models will allow to a better evaluation of microcosm and mesocosm experiments performed for scientific or registration purposes.

    The TOXSWA model calculates the acute exposure concentration and the average exposure concentrations (AECs) of pesticides in ditches after 4, 21 and 28 days. In a (global) sensitivity analysis based on the Monte Carlo method the most sensitive processparameters (pesticide properties) and the most sensitive system parameters (e.g. ditch dimensions) with respect to AECs were determined. The process parametes "transformation rate in the water layer", "coefficient for sorption to macrophytes" and "Henry coefficient" were identified as contributing most to the varation in the AECs. The full range of pesticides was characterized by these three parameters and subsequently the flow velocity, water depth and dry weight of macrophyutes were identified sas sensitive system parameters with respect to the AECs. Analytically, the water depth, bottom width of the ditch and the sorption coefficients for sorption to macrophytes and suspended solids were identified as sensitive parameters with respect to the acute exposure concentration.

    De omvang van enkele bovengrondse emissieroutes voor bestrijdingsmiddelen naar waterlopen bij lage vollegrondsteelten is onderzocht. Het overwaaien van spuitvloeistof bij de toediening leidt veelal tot grote overschrijding van de ecotoxicologische norm en van de norm voor oppervlaktewater bestemd voor de drinkwaterbereiding. De 90e-percentielwaarden voor bestrijdingsmiddelen in de neerslag liggen veelal wat boven de drinkwaternorm van 0,1 Šg/l. Het onderzoek naar de afspoeling over het bodemoppervlakdient te worden voortgezet voor gevoelige situaties (bodem, neerslag), omdat de betrokken bestrijdingsmiddelconcentraties hoog kunnen zijn.

    The springtail Folsomia candida was exposed to the insecticide parathion in loamy, sandy and peaty soils. The dose-response relationships were measured and used to calculate the 50%-effect (EC50) values. The toxicity of parathion in the three soils could be explained from its bio-availability, as a result of adsorption and transformation. In soil, bio-availability decreased faster than pesticide content, due to continued shift to stronger adsorption. A first estimate of pesticide effect on soil organisms can be obtained by combining water-only toxicity values with measurements/calculations of the concentration in soil solution.

    Volatilization rates of pesticides were measured with two micrometeorological methods. For fenpropimorph, the highest rates (1.3-3.0% per hour) were measured in the first hours after application. The rate gradually declined to less than 0.01% per houron the sixth day. Clopyralid had much lower volatilization rates. They were highest (0.1% per hour) on the day after the day of application and declined below the detection limit (less than 0.01% per hour) on the sixth day after application. Rates calculated with the aerodynamic method were slightly higher than those calculated with the Bowen ratio.

    Het Landelijk Meetnet Bodemkwaliteit (LMB) heeft als primaire doelstelling de trendmatige veranderingen na te gaan in de kwaliteit van de bodem ten gevolge van diffuse belasting van de bodem. Het object van onderzoek is de toplaag van de bodem (0-10 cm); daarnaast wordt ook een diepere bodemlaag en het bovenste grondwater onderzocht. Het LMB wordt in samenwerking met LEI-DLO en AB-DLO uitgevoerd. Jaarlijks worden een 2-tal combinaties van bodemgebruik en grondsoort bemonsterd, bestaande uit ca. 20 locaties per combinatie. In 1993 is gestart met de bemonstering van landbouwgrond op zandgrond. Voor het bodemgebruik landbouw is het bedrijf de schaal van de locatie. De categorieen die in 1994 zijn onderzocht, zijn melkveehouderijbedrijven met een groot aandeel intensieve veehouderij op zandgrond en bos op zandgrond. Naast algemene kwaliteitsparameters zijn parameters onderzocht die gerelateerd zijn aan de milieuthema's vermesting en verspreiding. Vermestingsparameters zijn fosfaat (bodem en grondwater) , nitraat, kalium en ammonium (grondwater). Voor verspreiding zijn zware metalen onderzocht (bodem en grondwater). Voorts zijn bodemgehalten aan PAK en een aantal organochloorbestrijdingsmiddelen (OCB) bepaald.

    A long-term (>10 months) leaching experiment was conducted with a large clay soil column and a rain simulator to study unsaturated transport of the nematicide aldicarb and the herbicide simazine in a cracked clay soil. Water retention and soil conductivity were derived from experimental outflow data and deterministic parameter estimation techniques. Under conventional application rates and realistic rain events, aldicarb's aerobic metabolites were found in very high concentrations, and did not meet the normal EC levels for water during the entire measuring period. A mass balance for aldicarb showed that 0.35% of the initial dose was leached. However, when the two isosteric metabolites aldicarb-sulfoxide and aldicarb-sulfone were included in the mass balance, this percentage increased dramatically to 19.7%. Simazine was found in relatively low concentrations of 0.05-0.6 g/l, and only 0.11% of the initial dose was leached over 280 days. The absence of a `breakthrough behaviour' (peak exposure) implies long term delivery (chronic exposure) of the compound from the soil. The predictive performances of the widely used pesticide leaching models VARLEACH, LEACHP, MACRO, PESTLA and SIMULAT, which differ in their basic concepts for calculating water and solute transport and pesticide behaviour, were compared. This ring test revealed that none of the models were able to describe both water percolation and pesticide leaching to a completely satisfying degree. Moreover, there is little agreement on maximum pesticide concentrations and the time period in which these occur. This conclusion seriously limits the possibilities of model application and conducting reliable risk assessments for pesticides which are applied on the studied, or similar type of clay soils.

    Organic pollutants can be transformed, both in unsaturated and saturated areas of the soil, by means of biologically mediated reactions. The potential of soil microorganisms to clean up polluted soils is enormous. However, soil systems are highly heterogeneous with respect to the spatial distribution of substrates, nutrients and microorganisms, and also with respect to various phases and interfaces (e.g. water, air, minerals, organic matter). To come to the development of appropriate soil bioremediation techniques, comprehensive knowledge is required about the biological and physico- chemical processes and parameters that determine the rate, the nature and the degree of degradation of organic compounds within a certain time scale in soil. The most important processes and parameters that influence the behavior of pollutants in soil are shown in Figure 7.1.

    Several aspects, which may arise when assessing the application of microorganisms in soil remediation. techniques, have been studied in this thesis.

    A major part of this thesis concerns the environmental conditions, that are essential for biodegradation. The biodegradability of a pollutant depends not only on the molecular structure of this pollutant, but also on the occurrence of the appropriate enviromnental conditions. The biodegradation of many enviromnental pollutants has been studied primarily under aerobic conditions, since these conditions are prevailing in polluted locations and easy to maintain. However, the anaerobic degradation of pollutants forms a relatively new potential of interesting reactions, which may be used for bioremediation purposes.

    For instance, β-hexachlorocyclohexane (β-HCH), a waste product from the production of the pesticide lindane, is considered extremely recalcitrant under aerobic conditions.

    This may be due to the spatial arrangement of the chlorine atoms in this HCH isomer. Disappearance of β-HCH under anaerobic conditions has been reported, but product identifications and mass balances were lacking in these studies. In Chapter 2, the biodegradation of β-HCH under anaerobic conditions is described. It is shown that β-HCH can be dechlorinated under methanogenic conditions. The observed dechlorination products of β-HCH, benzene and chlorobenzene, have individually been found for the anaerobic biodegradation of γ-HCH, but they were never reported to be formed simultaneously from any HCH isomer by microorganisms.

    The dechlorination products of β-HCH, benzene and chlorobenzene, accumulate under the conditions studied. The formation of these products, which are potentially toxic, introduces a new problem since chlorobenzene is recalcitrant under methanogenic conditions and anaerobic benzene degradation has been observed in only a few cases. However, many studies have shown that these compounds are degradable in the presence of molecular oxygen. Therefore a bioremediation process in which subsequently anaerobic and aerobic conditions are created would lead to a total mineralization of β-HCH.

    Such a sequential change from anaerobic to aerobic conditions also applies to the decontamination of soils polluted with polychlorinated benzenes (CBs) and biphenyls (PCBs). These compounds, when substituted with five or more chlorine atoms, generally persist under aerobic conditions. However, anaerobic reductive dechlorination of these compounds has abundantly been shown. The products of this dechlorination process are important for several reasons. From a toxicological point of view, because ortho -chlorinated PCBs are considered 10-100 times less toxic than non ortho -chlorinated ones (coplanar PCBs), but also from a biotechnological point of view, since the dechlorination products are the substrates in an eventually following aerobic treatment. Microbial reductive dechlorination of PCBs is mainly limited to meta - and para -dechlorination, and therefore reduces the toxicity of the PCBs. Dechlorination of CBs and PCBs also increases the water solubility and therefore the mobility of these compounds in the soil. This may be advantageous in the case of an ex situ bioremediation. However, since this process has been shown to occur in undisturbed polluted sediment and will also occur in biological soil treatments in situ , one should prevent the pollutant to move away from the polluted site.

    The dechlorination of CBs and PCBs is carried out by different groups of microorganisms, originating from different locations. Chapter 3 describes the dechlorination of these compounds in a methanogenic consortium, enriched from a mixture of Polluted sediments on 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (TCB). CBs appear to be extensively dechlorinated by this consortium, with 1,2- and 1,3-dichlorobenzene (DCB) as well as chlorobenzene as the final products. This is in contrast with the performance of previously reported enrichments, which have been obtained mainly using hexa- and pentachlorobenzene as substrates for dechlorination. Such cultures show a lesser extent of dechlorination and produce 1,3,5-TCB or 1,3-TCB as final products, which are problematic compounds for an eventually following aerobic mineralization. Chapter 3 also shows that, whereas mono- through pentachlorobenzenes are dechlorinated within 2 days, hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and several PCBs are dechlorinated after a lag phase of about two weeks. Dechlorination of the latter compounds occurs via a different pathway, in which only chlorines with two adjacent chlorines are removed. Chapter 3 also shows that dechlorination of highly chlorinated benzenes can be directed to the formation of chlorobenzene as the only product by the addition of 2-bromoethanesulfonic acid (BrES), a methanogenic inhibitor. These observations show that different dechlorinating activities are present in the consortium. They are probably carried out by different physiological groups of microorganisms. In contrast, Chapter 4 describes a different methanogenic consortium which has the capacity to dechlorinate both CBs and PCBs with the same specificity toward chlorine substution pattern of these compounds. This and the fact that similar lag phases for the dechlorination of CBs and PCBs were observed, shows that the dechlorination of these compounds may be carried out by the same type of microorganisms.

    Chapter 5 applies to the environmental conditions which are necessary for a fast dechlorination of PCBs. Anaerobic reductive dechlorination of PCBs is a slow process, in which lag periods of weeks to months are commonly observed before dechlorination starts. Also the maintenance and subcultivation of PCB dechlorinating microbial consortia are extremely difficult. The optimal enviromnental conditions for the dechlorination process are not known. This is partly due to our lack of knowledge about the physiology of microbial reductive dehalogenation in general and about dechlorination of PCBs in particular. In Chapter 5, the lag phase of the reductive dechlorination of 2,3,4,5-tetrachlorobiphenyl (TeCBP), performed by the consortium described in Chapter 4, was reduced by means of different types of additions to the medium. Sterile Rhine sand appears to shorten the lag phase and to be essential for the maintenance of the consortium. A similar positive effect of sand was also observed in other dechlorinating consortia (Chapter 2 and 3) and for the degradation of toluene in a manganese reducing consortium.

    The mechanism of the reduction of the lag phase by Rhine sand is not known. The Rhine sand that we added to our medium, may contain additional trace metals, necessary for dechlorination. Although the organic carbon content in the Rhine sand we used is very low (<0.05% w/w), another explanation may be that the organic matter served as a supply of growth factors, like vitamins, for the dechlorinating bacteria. Sorption of 2,3,4,5-TeCBP to the sand might also improve the contact between the PCBs and the dechlorinating cells, if these cells tend to settle out or grow on the sand surface (adhesion).

    The addition of anaerobic granular sludge (AGS), either autoclaved or not, also reduced the lag phase before dechlorination of 2,3,4,5-TeCBP drastically. The decrease of the lag phase, achieved by the addition of AGS, may be caused by factors, originating from microorganisms in the AGS. However, the addition of the redox mediator vitamin B 12 , Which is abundantly present in AGS, had little effect on the lag phase. Reduction of the lag phase for PCB dechlorination was also observed by Abramowicz et al. who added fluid thioglycolate medium with beef extract (FTMBE) to polluted Hudson River sediments. In fact, the use of undefined additions such as AGS and FTMBE illustrates how little is known about the mechanism of reductive dechlorination of PCBs. It is of practical importance that a relatively cheap and easily available material such as AGS also reduces the lag phase for dechlorination in a methanogenic enrichment, which is capable of dechlorinating the complex PCB mixture Aroclor 1260 (Chapter 5). It may be worth trying to introduce AGS into methanogenic river sediments polluted with PCBs, to stimulate in situ dechlorination.

    Another aspect one should consider when taking biodegradation into practice is the availability of the pollutant for biodegradation. This is illustrated in Chapter 6, which deals with the biodegradation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) in different soil types by inoculated Rhodococcus chlorophenolicus. After an initially high mineralization rate of the PCP in the inoculated soils, this rate decreased during time and levelled off, leaving behind a residual amount of PCP. Such a non- degraded residue has been observed in many soil biodegradation studies and is referred to as a fraction that is not available for biotransformation, i.e. not bioavailable. Limited bioavailability is considered as one of the most important problems impeding the development of successful bioremediation techniques.

    The rate at which microorganisms can degrade pollutants during bioremediation depends on the intrinsic metabolic activity of the cell, and on the transfer of the pollutant to the cell. Thus, bioavailability of a pollutant is determined by the rate of mass transfer, relative to the activity of the microbial cells. As bacteria generally degrade pollutants to concentrations which are much lower than the residual concentrations observed in soils, it appears that mass transfer is the limiting factor for further degradation. This was confirmed by Bosma et al. who quantified bioavailability by modelling the effect of both mass transfer and the intrinsic activity of the microbial cells. Bioavailability of a pollutant is controlled by a number of physico-chemical processes, such as sorption, diffusion and dissolution. Especially in old polluted sites, part of the pollutants appears to be inaccessible to degrading bacteria. This was shown for a soil contaminated with chlorophenols for over 40 years, in which bioremediation through composting resulted in a residual concentration of about 40 mg/kg. No further degradation was observed when the soil was inoculated with PCP mineralizing bacteria. However, 14C-labelled PCP which was freshly added to this soil led immediately to a complete mineralization of the added PCP. Similar results were reported for two soils contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and for the reductive dechlorination of hexachlorobenzene in sediment. Rijnaarts et al. showed that biodegradation rates of α-hexachlorocyclohexane in soil could be increased by breaking up the soil particles.

    Such observations indicate a reduced bioavailability due to a so-called "ageing" of the pollutant in the soil. This may be caused by different processes. The first process is a slow diffusion of the pollutant into the deeper and smaller pores of the soil particles and absorption into organic matter as visualized in Figure 7.2. The pollutant can only reach the degrading microorganisms - which are not small enough to penetrate into the deeper pores - by means of diffusion.

    A second process is the occurrence of the pollution as solid particles or as non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs) with surrounding semi-rigid films, from which mass transfer into the water phase is limited. Here, bioavailability is controlled by the actual dissolution rate. The third process is bound residue formation and involves the incorporation of pollutants into humic compounds via oxidative coupling reactions. This process especially applies to naphtolic compounds, chlorinated phenols, benzoic acids and anilines, due to their similarity to natural organic compounds. Oxidative coupling can be catalyzed by inorganic materials, such as sesquioxides, clay minerals, oxides and oxohydroxides of iron, silica, and allophane, but also by peroxidases and phenol monooxygenases. Bound residue formation alters the original chemical and biological activity of the pollutants, which therefore become less available, less toxic and less mobile in the soil system. Chapter 6 shows that PCP, freshly added to a sandy and a peaty soil, can be partly recovered as extractable organic halogen (EOX) after 4 months of incubation. However, a chloride mass balance reveals that in the peaty soil, not all measured EOX can be ascribed to PCP, its transformation product pentachloroanisole, or any other possible low molecular weight organic chlorinated compound (MW < 512). This indicates that bound residue formation may have taken place in a time period of 4 months.

    The use of the oxidative enzymes has been proposed as a method to immobilize organic pollutants into the humic material of the soil by stimulating bound residue formation. However, uncontrollable release and distribution of the pollutant cannot be guaranteed. Macromolecular components of dissolved organic matter may form colloids which serve as carriers facilitating the transport of contaminants that bind to the organic matter. Furthermore, fungal oxidative enzymes have also been shown to catalyze unwanted reactions, like the formation of highly toxic chlorinated dibenzodioxins from coupling reactions with chlorinated phenols as substrate.

    It can be concluded that bioavailability is more a physico-chemical problem rather than a microbiological problem. Solutions have therefore to be sought in physico-chemical techniques to increase the transport of the pollutants to the degrading bacteria. These techniques may comprise pulverizing soil particles, increasing the water content of the soil (slurry systems), heating the soil, and using detergents to increase solubility and/or desorption.

    In this thesis, the ever increasing capability of microorganisms to degrade chlorinated pesticides and industrial chemicals is demonstrated, provided that the appropriate enviromnental conditions are created. Despite this enormous potential, the limited bioavailability of pollutants in old contaminated sites and strict soil quality standards, largely hamper the application of microorganisms in soil remediation techniques. The mentioned techniques to increase the availability of pollutants have economical or enviromnental drawbacks. Alternative remediation techniques like incineration or solvent-extraction yields soils without any biological activity, which' destiny is mainly to be used as raw material for building purposes.

    On the other hand, one should ask what the consequences can be of the slow release of the residual amount of a pollutant from a soil that has been biologically treated. (Eco)toxicological assessment of such soil may serve the development of guidelines for the urgency to remove residual pollutants from such soils. Such an approach would stimulate the use of in situ bioremediation techniques, which eventually prevents polluted soil from being excavated. Of course, a continuous monitoring of the soil quality and an appropriate groundwater management of run-off water are essential.

    The effects and relative impacts of environmental variables on the behaviour of pesticides, through the effect on pesticide-degrading microorganisms, was studied in a broad spectrum and covered the most relevant emission routes. It is shown that the effect of landscape geochemistry, which is a pre-set condition in an agricultural management, may be significant (chapter 2). Adjoining soil types, which occur within short distance in an agricultural unit, were characterized and tested on their pesticide leachability and potential risk to groundwater. The use of a 14C radio-labelled pesticide enabled accurate study of its movement in soil layers. Distinctly different pesticide behaviour in topsoil and subsoil layers were observed within this soil series sequence. An alternative of conventional (i.e. uniform) pesticide application rates, which generally results in over-treating some sites and under-treating others, is site specific treatment. In such managements, doses are tailored to individual soil types or soil properties. This may be beneficial from both an economical as an environmental point of view. A prerequisite in such pest managements is the accuracy and reliability in which the leaching potentials of pesticides in various soils are predicted. Of much concern is the fact that there appears to be little agreement between the existing pesticide leaching models in predicting the residence time in soil and subsequent leaching to groundwater (chapter 3). This may be especially valid in soils that display preferent flow patterns, in which solutes by-pass the soil matrix without being subjected to significant sorption and degradation. It was concluded that the introduction of a variety of conceptual descriptions, thus covering ranges in specific soil properties, may improve the applicability of such models. From an environmental point of view, it is necessary to approximate concentrations not only in terms of magnitude but also at the time and the duration at which these occur. With conventional application rates, distinctly different leaching behaviour was observed in a clay lysimeter for aldicarb, a carbamate nematicide, and simazine, an s- triazine herbicide. Aldicarb leached almost instantaneously, but its aerobe metabolites were found in very high concentrations which did not meet the EC-norm level for water over a period of 300 days. A mass balance for aldicarb showed that 0.35% of the initial dose had leached from the soil. However, when the two isosteric metabolites aldicarb-sulfoxide and aldicarb-sulfone were included in the mass balance, this percentage increased dramatically to almost 20%. The concentrations of both metabolites far exceeded those of the parent compound over a long period. Aldicarb is isosteric to acetylcholine, which plays an important role in the nerve system of organisms, and is therefore capable of inhibiting the performance of acetylcholine-esterase. Since aldicarb's metabolites are oxidation products, in which the critical molecular length is not altered, it may be assumed that aldicarb-sulfoxide and aldicarb-sulfone are capable of doing the same. Therefore, the toxicity of these metabolites may be at least additive. In contrast, simazine leaches in relatively low concentrations - only 0.11% of the initial dose was recovered - but these concentrations were measured over a very long period. The absence of a 'breakthrough behaviour' (peak exposure to aqueous environments), as was observed for aldicarb, implies long term delivery (chronic exposure) of simazine from the soil. To better quantify the effects on intrinsic pesticide behaviour, the relative impact of individual soil characteristics and environmental properties was discussed (chapter 6). For the herbicide metamitron, it is shown that transformation rates were dictated, in order of significance, by temperature, oxygen availability and sorption to organic carbon. Since these variables show large variation in depth of the soil column, the resulting biodegradation rates may change dramatically. Half lives increased from several days in the topsoil to over one year in subsoil layers. The underlying dynamics of microbial growth and development that are proposed (chapter 4 and 5) show that a multi-layered approach and the assignment of realistic concentrations and conditions to soil layers may improve approximations of microbial inhibition and growth in depth. These nonlinear dynamics can be linked, simultaneously, to pesticide metabolism and disappearance rates, using parameter estimation techniques.

    Transformation rates and pathways that occur over the soil-aqueous transition zone (i.e. aerobic topsoil-subsoil- anearobic sediment) were tested extensively for four distictly different pesticides that represent their chemical group (chapter 7). It is shown that the prevailing redox conditions have a large impact on pesticide transformation rates. Some phenoxy-acetic compounds, which are considered improbable leachers based on their short aerobic half lives, appear to be persistent in low-oxygeneous conditions. The opposite effect was observed for aldicarb, in which chemical catalysis increased transformation rates when redox potentials decreased. It is shown that a temporal but severe period of oxygen inhibition can be survived by the microbial population. The involved microorganisms can temporarily decrease their activity and can recover within some days from a 109 day stress period. A dynamic chain reaction model is presented, which describes the formation of metabolites from the parent compound, and subsequent transformation, as an interactive, concentration-dependent process.

    An attempt to identify the major discriminating variables that determine the fate of pesticides in surface waters was undertaken (chapter 8). A large set of environmental parameters, composed of physico-chemical, bio-chemical and chemical characteristics, was reduced to three major component groups, explaining the majority of variance of transformation rates of four pesticides that were observed in a variety of surface waters. The first component contains variables that promote biorespiratory processes. The second component is a macro/micro- nutrient group. The third component is the phosphorous group. It is shown that small, lotic systems such as field ditches have a larger potential to degrade specific compounds than large, lentic systems, such as channels and lakes. This effect is largely attributed to microbial activity and the possibility of a relevant community to develop. The specific role of Mg/Mn and phosphorus concentrations in nitrifying surface waters on biotransformation rates is identified (chapter 9). Large phosphorus concentrations favour bacterial growth, but a large fraction of less available phosphates may inhibit transformation rates of aldicarb. Addition of orthophosphate increased the residence time of dissolved Mn, which may under certain conditions promote biotransformation rates. Furthermore, PO 4 enrichment may decrease concentrations of aldicarb's metabolites. In a mechanically aerated batch experiment, it was shown that simazine is virtually persistent except for a short period that coincides with the nitrification process in which NH 4 dissipates and NO 2 and NO 3 are formed. Respectively, relationships of Mg/Mn concentrations with MCPA transformation rates, and P/PO 4 concentrations with aldicarb transformation rates, are presented. These relationships may be used to assess these elements as environmental indicators for potential biotransformation of these compounds, or members of the chemical group, but only in combination with conditions that warrant the development and growth of a degrading population over a longer period of time. An illustration of the effects of the individual properties, that were identified in chapter 8 and 9, is given in figure 1. The relationships between these properties were previously discussed in detail. It is generally believed that the dissolved fraction of a compound, as opposed to the sorbed fraction, is much better available to microorganisms and is therefore degraded rapidly. For surface waters however, it is likely that sorption may in fact enhance biodegradation by concentrating the target compound, by concentrating nutrients, and by providing a large surface area for the attachment of bacteria.

    It should be emphasised that the observed behaviour of the studied pesticides is not restricted to the individual compound, but may represent analogies for compounds within their chemical group. It is evident that laboratory breakdown tests, which are mostly conducted in a batch- type set up, should include system characterisation, and should recognise the influence of alterations in these characteristics. Co-precipitation, which is a common phenomenon in heterogeneous solutions, may lead to deficiencies of essential elements that are utilised by pesticide degrading microorganisms, and therefore affect the interpretation of such experiments.

    A key issues in pesticide risk assessments is the fact that many compounds are readily transformed to compounds which are toxic to target and non-target organisms throughout the environment. Organophosphate and organosulfur insecticides commonly have initial transformation products with well-established insecticidal activity, often of greater potency than the parent compound. A common reaction observed in many sulfide- containing pesticides is oxidation to sulfoxides and sulfones which are usually active on a spectrum of pests similar to the parent compound. The formation of aldicarb sulfoxide and sulfone, which is described in chapter 7, is an example of this. The simultaneous occurrence of parent compound and oxides may even lead to an increased toxicity. Of much concern is the fact that these toxicologically active transformation products tend to be more mobile than the respective parent compound (Chapter 3). Thus, there is an underestimation of the environmental risks when the parent compound rather than the residue concentrations are used. It may well be stated that metabolite formation must be considered a key issue in pesticide risk evaluations that consider the terrestrialaquatic emission route. However, there is much hesitation to study pesticide transformation products. This is due to mainly four arguments:
    1. High costs are associated with the analyses of the numerous possible compounds.
    2. The increase in polarity makes the isolation and analysis of metabolites often more difficult than the analysis of the parent compound.
    3. If a metabolite standard is not available, synthesis may be required.
    4. The problem of which metabolites to identify, to prioritise, and to assign as important, environmental risk indicators.

    The last argument is of particular importance, and future scientific efforts should focus on this issue. The recent advances in solid phase extraction (SPE) techniques, which have increased the ability to isolate metabolites from water, have attributed significantly to the feasibility of this goal.

    A second key issue in risk assessments originates from the fact that the environment is subjected to a

    range of pesticides that occur simultaneously. This is true for soil, but may be of particular importance for surface waters and aquatic sediments. According to the published literature, the toxicity of many pesticide combinations is at least additive. In some cases, pesticide mixtures - particularly those involving insecticides - have been shown to be synergistic. The bilateral effects in pesticide mixtures on sorption has also been discussed in chapter 7. The most appropriate approach to minimising risks for pesticide mixtures appears to be to assume additive toxicity in all cases, which may include the possible formation of specific metabolites. Still, the problem remains of identifying the environmental compartment that dictates the bottle-necks in risk assessments of a specific pesticide or chemical group.

    The performance of a newly developed column method for pesticide transformation rate measurements in the subsoil was tested using (Z)- and (E)-3-chloroallyl alcohol as model compounds. The subsoil columns were filled in situ. In the column experiment the half-life ranged from 0.5-5.2 d for (Z)-3-chloroallyl alcohol and from 1.0-5.5 d for (E)-3-chloroallyl alcohol. The transformation rates were compared with rates in laboratory incubation systems, in which the 3-chloroallyl alcohols were transformed gradually in the first three days, with a half-life of 1.9 d for both isomers. The two methods yielded similar results for these rapidly transforming compounds.

    De belasting van grond- en oppervlaktewater via verschillende emissieroutes is gekwantificeerd. De belasting wordt veroorzaakt door een klein aantal bestrijdingsmiddelen. Of deze stoffen in het grond- en oppervlaktewater belanden, wordt sterk door de hydrologie bepaald. Zowel de bodemfysische en bodemchemische omstandigheden als fysisch-chemische eigenschappen van een bestrijdingsmiddel hebben eveneens grote invloed op het gedrag van de stof.

    By means of the insecticide chlorpyrifos, results of acute single-species toxicity tests were compared with direct effects in outdoor mesocosms. In the mesocosms, chlorpyrifos concentrations between 0.1 and 44 Šg/l were sprayed once. Acute effects were observed on arthropods. Effects could be quantified for seven species. For these species, EC50s were similar to their laboratory EC50s. The most sensitive standard test species was about representative of susceptible indigenous species. Effects were negligible at 0.1 Šg/l. A factor of 0.1 * 48-h LC50 of Daphnia magna may have protected most species in the community from direct effects. A safety factor of 0.01 may have protected the most susceptible taxa we found.

    This study assessed the suitability of seven species of soil invertebrates for toxicologically testing pesticides in water. Requirements were that the organisms must survive in water, be easy to handle, be easy to breed, be sensitive to pesticides, and show unambiguous toxicological effects. The organisms tested were the nematodes Plectus parietinus and Globodera rostochiensis, the white pot-worms Enchytraeus buchholzi and Enchytraeus albidus, the manure worm Eisenia fetida, the mite Caloglyphus mycophagus, and the springtail Folsomia candida. The springtail met all the requirements and proved to be the most suitable of the organisms tested for soil quality assessment with soil pore water.

    Het niveau waarin verontreinigingen voorkomen in de bodem, wordt meeestal weergegeven als het gehalte van die stoffen. Vaak kan slechts een deel daarvan worden opgenomen door bodemorganismen. Deze biologische beschikbaarheid verschilt per bodemtype endaardoor veroorzaakt eenzelfde gehalte van een stof uiteenlopende giftigheid. Ook voor bestrijdingsmiddelen zijn gehalten niet maatgevend voor ongewenste neveneffecten. Om de biologische risico's van bestrijdingsmiddelen in de bodem beter te beoordelenmoet men de concentraties in het bodemporiewater kennen en vergelijken met blootstelling-effectrelaties bepaald in laboratoriumtoxiciteitstoetsen. Voor diverse bodemorganismen kunnen deze toetsen in water worden uitgevoerd.

    This paper describes long-term effects of chlorpyrifos on macro-invertebrates and zooplankton after a single application. Crustaceans and insects showed a rapid, concentration-dependent decrease in numbers after application (direct effects). A significant increase in gastropods and oligochaetes was found, suggesting indirect effects. The start of recovery of the invertebrate populations affected depended not only on the susceptibility of the taxa, but also on ecological characteristics, such as length of the life cycle. Safe concentrations, based on no observed short-term effect levels for some characteristic indigenous taxa susceptible to chlorpyrifos, also appeared to protect the total invertebrate community in the long term.

    The TOXSWA model describes the fate of pesticides entering field ditches by spray drift, atmospheric deposition, surface run-off, drainage or leaching. It considers four processes: transport, transformation, sorption and volatilization. Analytical andnumerical solutions corresponded well. A sample simulation showed that sorption to macrophytes can considerably reduce the concentration in the water phase. However, sorption to macrophytes leads to a slower transport and thus to longer residence times for the pesticide in the water layer. Sedimentation and resuspension of suspended solids were not considered, so that the model can only be applied for periods shorter than one month.

    An acute-toxicty test is described in which the springtail Folsomia candida was exposed to pesticides in water for four days. The test method has been designed for the direct and economical chemical analyses of all the concentrations during the execution of the test. The 96-hour EC50 values determined for parathion, carbofuran, dimethoate and oxamyl were 0.0087, 0.222, 16.2 and 23.6 mg/l, respectively. The toxicity of the pesticides was correlated with their lipophilicity. For terrestrial hazard assessment procedures the use of the intrinsic toxicity of chemicals to soil organisms, as determined in this simple test, is proposed.

    The movement of pesticides through soil and groundwater to pumping wells for drinking-water supply was modelled. Most of the retardation and transformation occurs when a pesticide moves through the unsaturated zone. Computed leaching to groundwater increased when soil heterogeneity was taken into account. A column method was developed to measure the rate of pesticide transformation in the aquifer as input for models. The fluctuation of the concentration in the pumping well due to the application pattern was computed to be largest for aquifers with short characteristic travel times of the solute.

    The Root Zone Water Quality Model is a process-based model that integrates physical, chemical and biological processes to simulate the fate and movement of water and agrochemicals over and through the root zone at a representative point in a field with various management practices. The model was evaluated with field data for the movement of water and bromide, and the transformation and transport of cyanazine and metribuzin in the soil profile. The model reasonably simulated soil water and bromide movement. Pesticide persistence was predicted reasonably well with a two-site sorption model that assumes a rate-limited adsorption-desorption process with the additional assumption of negligible degradation of interaggregate-adsorbed pesticides.

    The development and duration of accelerated degradation of nematicides were studied in incubation experiments with soils from three experimental fields that had been treated annually for three to ten years with aldicarb, oxamyl, ethoprophos, fenamiphos or 1,3-dichloropropene. Highly accelerated degradation rates were measured for aldicarb, oxamyl and ethoprophos in a sandy soil (pH 7.3) treated three times. After five years without further treatments, these high rates were still found for aldicarb and oxamyl, but not for ethoprophos. In another field (sandy soil, pH 5.6) little or no increase in the degradation rates was measured in plots that had been treated ten times.

    Onderzocht is of de uitspoeling van bestrijdingsmiddelen uit kasgronden via drainagestelsels naar waterlopen kan worden teruggedrongen. De belasting van de bodem kan worden verminderd door de gewasbehandelingsmiddelen meer gewasgericht toe te dienen. De watergiften in kassen zijn hoger dan nodig is; dit vergroot het uitspoelingsrisico aanzienlijk. De omzettingssnelheid van de voorbeeldmiddelen diazinon, heptenofos en tolclofosmethyl in kasgronden werd gemeten. Vervluchtiging en fotochemische omzetting leveren nauwelijks een bijdrage aan de afname van de middelen op het bodemoppervlak in kassen. Dit onderzoek levert de invoergegevens die nodig zijn voor uitspoelingsberekeningen met een standaardmodel.

    Het overwaaien van bestrijdingsmiddelen bij bespuitingen in de bloembollenteelt, als mogelijke bron van verontreiniging van waterlopen, is onderzocht. De methoden voor het meten van de depositie van de voorbeeldstoffen esfenvaleraat, chloridazon en Brilliant Sulfoflavine op verschillende collectoren zijn getoetst. In de drie veldproeven nam de aërieke depositie buiten het gewas af tot respectievelijk 0,6%, 0,9% en 2,1% van de dosering op de benedenwindse slootrand (op 3 u 4 m afstand). De aërieke depositie op het wateroppervlak (op ongeveer 5 m afstand) lag rond 0,5% van de dosering. Een spuitvrije zone van 4 u 5 m breedte levert een grote bijdrage aan het verminderen van overwaaien van spuitvloeistof naar de waterlopen.
