Intensive agriculture potatoes field

The surface water in Drenthe is heavily polluted with pesticides, while about half of these has been classified as "dangerous".

Drenthe is a province in the Netherlands with very vulnerable grounds which allows for the dispersion of pesticides into the water. Existing measures are not sufficient to protect the quality of the water. In addition, Drenthe scores very low in sustainable agriculture. 

The English summary is avalaible here, and the full publication (in Dutch) can be read here.
