Agricultural practices based on periodic inputs of organic amendments are strongly recommended for Mediterranean agro-ecosystems. Such amendments can change the soil's properties and transport characteristics, and hence affect the behaviour and fate of pesticides. S-metolachlor is an herbicide commonly used in intensive crops. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of fresh oiled (OW) and de-oiled two-phase olive mill waste (DW) amendments on the sorption, leaching, and… CONTINUE READING
