Major research on nutrient and pesticide leaching from cultivated soils, including first European paper in 1974 on the dynamics of groundwater nitrate pollution from ‘post-war agricultural land-use practices’, and subsequently on the management of diffuse pollution and groundwater use for irrigated agriculture.
