The purpose of the report was to do an inventory of nursery gardens in the surroundings of Umeå and to find which one of the nursery gardens that had the greatest risk of being polluted by pesticides and to examine which pesticides that had been used in the nursery gardens in the past. Five nursery gardens were selected and examined through interviews, visits and protocols from the municipality of Umeå and from that information an assessment by the methods for inventory of polluted soil (MIFO), which the Swedish form of EPA has designed, has been done. The historical use of pesticides on each site was examined through interviews, visits and protocols from municipality of Umeå.
