Soil Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started the Multi-Media Monitoring Study in 2015, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan, to measure changes in neonicotinoid insecticide concentrations in the environment following restrictions on the use of neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seeds.

This data characterizes neonicotinoid concentrations in soil at 38 study sites in five southern Ontario watersheds.

The other components of the Multi-Media Monitoring Study (stream water neonicotinoid concentrations and benthic invertebrate data) are available separately.
