Besides these aspects, the emissions of pesticides and the production of waste were also included in the study. To determine the environmental impact of pesticides Pluimers describes two approaches. In the first approach, the methodology of the environmental yardstick for pesticide emissions from greenhouse cultivations was used. As described above, the emissions of pesticides depend on several chemical and physical properties of the pesticides. To determine the impact of these emissions, the deposited amount of pesticides is divided by the maximum allowable concentration (MAC) of pesticides for aquatic organisms, which are the most sensitive organisms to pesticides.

This will usually lead to a concern on water scarcity and possibly to increased inputs and loss of nutrients and pesticides in the environment, which needs to be assessed within the LCA. On the other hand, most fruit types (chiefly fruit trees) are permanent crops that may be grown in conjunction with a vegetated and undisturbed soil. This type of crop represents an important potential for sequestering carbon into soil organic matter, and it may be relevant to address this issue in the impact assessment phase of the LCA.
