Sampling water, vegetation and soil – The multi-disciplinary field campaign

The first field campaign for the detection of pesticides was carried out with ITC students. During 3 days, the research team collected water, soil and vegetation samples from 15 sites in the study area. The samples will be processed and analysed according to a strict protocol in order to determine the pesticide content and to understand the fate of the pesticides in the different environmental compartments. At the same time, bacterial and mosquito samples were also collected by the IPC teams in nearby locations to conduct future cross-interpretations.
