Agricultural chemicals affect invertebrates in streams and soil, even at 'safe' levels.
Agricultural pesticides have been linked to widespread invertebrate biodiversity loss in two new research papers.
Pesticide use has sharply reduced the regional biodiversity of stream invertebrates, such as mayflies and dragonflies, in Europe and Australia, finds a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1..... http://www.nature.com/news/pesticides-spark-broad-biodiversity-loss-1.13214

UN CONFERENCE TAKES HISTORIC STRIDES TO STRENGTHEN CHEMICAL PESTICIDE SAFETY GLOBALLY
FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said that in many countries intensive crop production has depleted agriculture's natural resource base, jeopardizing future productivity. "To fight hunger and eradicate poverty, we will need to find more sustainable ways to produce 60 percent more food by 2050," he said. However, he recognized that chemical pesticides would continue to be part of farming in many parts of the world in future. ... http://www.unep.org/newscentre/default.aspx?DocumentID=2716&ArticleID=9501&l=en
