The world of soil microorganisms is an untapped world for all kinds of potential uses in the future with pesticide degradation being one of them. Many pesticides require residual qualities in order to do their job but there is a fine balance between being residual and causing environmental damage. This web cast seminar looks at factors in the soil that influence pesticide residues and degradation and look at ways in which we as pesticide applicators can help to assist pesticide degradation before it leaches into the subsoil or groundwater
