SLU Centre for Pesticides in the Environment

SLU Centre for Pesticides in the Environment (CKB) is a partnership forum within the area of chemical pesticides for researchers at SLU and interested parties outside the university. The Centre focuses mainly on fate and effects in the environment of pesticides used within agriculture.  The purpose of CKB is to develop knowledge that allows the effects of chemical pesticides on the environment to be described and predicted in a reliable way and that this knowledge shall lead to countermeasures so that the impact on the environment lies within acceptable limits.
