The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third largest in Europe, belonging to the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities through the Secretary of State for Universities, Research, Development and Innovation. Its main objective is to develop and promote research that will help bring about scientific and technological progress, and it is prepared to collaborate with Spanish and foreign entities in order to achieve this aim.

Researchers from IRNASA-CSIC study the effect of different soil management practices (organic amendments, mulching, direct seeding, rotational crops) on the dissipation and transport of pesticides in soils under field conditions, and the impact of pesticides and management practices on the soil microbial communities.
