Title
Identifying the catchment size at which robust estimations of agricultural land use can be made, and implications for diffuse pollution modelling
Description
Diffuse pollution is often responsible for observed concentrations of agricultural compounds being in excess of the upper limits prescribed by the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) and reductions in these concentrations will probably require widespread changes in farm practice.
