The article discusses the problem in water pollution that would be faced by British farmers from 2006-2016 and presents solutions to these problems according to European Union Environment Agency head of land use Helen Wakeham. Monitoring and modelling data carried out during initial fiver basin characterisations suggest 700/0 of England is likely to fail European Water Framework Directive objectives by 2015 due to diffuse agricultural inputs, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and pesticides. A nutrient management Voluntary Initiative could be set up to help farmers meet the targets set by the European Water Framework Directive. INSETS: Pesticide VI success;CEREALS VIEW;NVZ action plans might cut N use.
