Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of restricting herbicide, fungicide or pesticide use on or around ponds on golf courses on amphibian populations.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Studies investigating the effect of reducing chemical applications are discussed in ‘Threat: Pollution – Reduce pesticide, herbicide or fertilizer use’.
