Additional Information

Pesticides

Pesticide data for four sub-indicators are assessed against benchmarks and worst-case scenarios (ANZECC 99% and 80% protection of species, respectively). The sub-indicators are: Atrazine, Simazine, Tebuthiuron and Azinphos(methyl). Assessed scores are averaged per site, and then again across all sites at the catchment scale to provide catchment scores and grades for pesticides where data are available. For further information including how these grades were calculated, check out grading explained.
