SYNOPS: a web-based tool for environmental risk assessment

Monday, March 23, 2015

The present deliverable is about the development of a novel web-based tool for environmental risk assessment considering regional environmental and field conditions based on the methodology of the risk indicator model SYNOPS. The aim was to develop an online application in order to make the indicator SYNOPS available as an easy-to-use online tool, which can be used by farmers, advisors and stakeholders for risk analysis and comparison of single pesticides application strategies under region specific environmental and field conditions. Within the EU project PURE, SYNOPS-WEB was applied for ex-ante and ex-post assessment of the newly designed IPM strategies for the different crops in cropping systems activity.
