The Poland Agriculture and Water Quality Protection project, in operation since 1992, has identified several problems for the country's agricultural sector. This report focuses on the effects of agricultural production on water quality. These effects result primarily from the introduction into water sources of chemicals used to assist production, such as plant protection agents and fertilizers. The report also outlines five proposals for actions to change the present structure of agriculture in Poland.
