Pesticides in Kalisat River: water and sediment assessment

-, NANIK RETNO BUWONO , S.Pi, MP., (2019) Pesticides in Kalisat River: water and sediment assessment. Bioflux, 12.


Pesticides are chemicals that are intentionally introduced into the environment for the management of plant pests. The use of pesticides can deteriorate or eliminate river water quality through runoff. The Kalisat River flows over an agricultural area so pesticides and fertilizers can easily contaminate the waters. Therefore, a study was designed to determine the assessment of pesticide residues in the water and sediments of the Kalisat River. Pesticide residues found in water and sediments consist of 2 active ingredients, namely carbamate and cyfluthrin. The results showed that pesticide residues in water were below the maximum residual limit (MRL) set by the Ministry of Health Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia No. 416 of 1990. However, the residues in the sediments were above the MRL set by the EU pesticides database
