Annually, the farmers with fields within the model catchments are interviewed regarding crops grown and pesticides used. This information serves as guidance for which substances to include in the analyses and enables comparisons between detected concentrations in surface water and usage.

The data is so far only available in pdf-format or printed copies of the annual reports (link to publications, in Swedish). A public database is under development where results from the interviews will be available in aggregated form.
