Agricultural plastics as a potential threat of soil pollution by microplastics

See the work on Zenodo

“The dynamic expansion of Agricultural Plastics (AP) use has allowed for improved and sustainable agricultural production. The objective of this work is to analyse the relationship of AP characteristics, degradation, and End-of-Life (EoL) practices with the potential risk of micro-, nanoparticles (MNP) generation in soil.”
