2nd Agriculture Webinar

Impacts of Pesticides on Soil and Environment

The extensive use of pesticides over the last several decades has highlighted the potential risk posed by pesticides to the soil environment. An increasing proportion of arable soils have been reported to be contaminated with pesticides to varying degrees. Soil contamination with pesticides influences non-target species, including humans, by affecting soil microbial populations, bacterial diversity, nitrogen transformations, soil animals, and soil enzymes, ultimately influencing entire agricultural ecosystems. The research on mechanisms of pesticide effects on non-target organisms and ecosystems is seeing progress. We expect to provide some thought-provoking exchanges through this webinar and inspire more scientific discoveries and solutions to be proposed in the future.

Bio
Dr. Geng is an Associate Professor in the Agro-Environmental Protection Institute, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, China. He also serves as a committee member of pesticide residue and environmental safety in the Chinese Society of Plant Protection. Dr. Geng has research interests in pesticide environmental risk assessment and agro-product safety estimation, especially the monitoring and modeling of pesticides in agricultural environments. His original contribution includes evaluating insecticide risk to human health via groundwater consumption and estimating the occurrence, main drivers, and environmental risk of pesticide in agricultural groundwater and surface water in China. His research has been supported by several grants, e.g., the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the sub-project of the National Key Research and Development Program, and the National Project for Agro-product Quality and Safety Risk Assessment.
