H4 indicator for field scale pesticide exposure to honeybees for 2021 - PN0810


Quantify residues in 100 honey samples spatially spread across England along a gradient of arable and horticultural agriculture and from two key time periods, May and August. Quantify residues in honey samples of key herbicides, fungicides and insecticides expanding on the previously used range for 1/1/201920 to better understand risk.
