Completion of monitoring site establishment and soil sampling

From April 2015 onwards, extensive field campaigns were carried in order to establish ground water monitoring sites on up to 10 agricultural fields in each participating country. Concomitantly, soil profiles were characterized, soil samples for physical and chemical analysis taken and soil trafficability measured.
