With the software Water Protect, VITO offers manufacturers of Plant Protection Products (PPPs) a digital tool to map products in the ground water and surface water. The focus is on a sustainable use of PPPs, in harmony with the environment.

Plant protection products or pesticides are ubiquitous in modern agriculture, but at the same time there should be paid attention to the sustainable use. With software Water Protect, VITO offers PPPs manufacturers a digital monitoring tool that displays the PPPs concentrations in an easy-to-grasp way. Water Protect was developed at the request of and in cooperation with the PPPs industry.

Limiting emissions of plant protection products to the surface water is of great importance to us. Water Protect helps us to maintain a nice overview of the monitoring data and allows us to purposefully improve the water quality.
