We want everyone in Norway to have easy access to our findings of pesticides in food and the environment. In 2016 we start planning an interactive web application that in the end will make data from the monitoring of pesticides in food and the environment in Norway easily accessible.

Summary

This web application will enable users, eg. Norwegian Agricultural Extension Service and farmers, to extract assemblies, graphs and time series of pesticide residues in Norwegian products, time series of pesticides found in agriculture streams and degradation rate of pesticides in Norwegian soil. The application will also include a guide for interpreting the data.

The tool can help increase awareness about the pesticides that may pose a risk in various commodities and under different soil/climate conditions - and which pesticides pose no risk – so that farmers can make good choices of pesticides to be used in their cultivation.

In 2016 we will develop a strategy for how existing databases of pesticide findings can be collected and how the web application architecture should be in order for users to extract data in a timely and quality-assured form.
