The article reports that savings to Scottish Water and its customers could be important if all 270 farms in Scotland's River Ugie catchment followed the decision tree for using isoproturon based on new soil risk maps for the 155 square kilometer area. According to Richard Allan of Robertson Crop Service, the situation in the Ugie catchment is different from that in England. A computer model produced by the National Soil Resources Institute was validated by tests on field drains and the river.
