The Pest-Man Project

Pesticide Management for better water quality

About us

Pest-Man is an EPA and DAFM funded research project. By combining a range of expertise through a network of collaboators, the project uses a multidisciplinary approach merging soil processes, molecular biology, engineering, and quantitative risk assessment methodologies to: (1) understand the drivers and pressures for the use of pesticides in the environment, (2) examine their fate and persistence, (3) evaluate any potential impact and risks to the environment and human health, (4) develop a low-cost, passive, insitu method to remediate pesticides in the environment, and (5) disseminate knowledge and engage stakeholders and the general public in the project.

Participating Organisations
