IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Determinacion de plaguicidas organoclorados en suelos agricolas del valle de
A non-experimental research at field and laboratory was performed in order to determine organochlorine pesticides (OCPs)
in soil samples from the river valley Tucutunemo Samples were taken between 25 and 30 cm deep in five locations with
three replications , located approximately every 3 Km ,. The samples were dried at ambient for three days and sieved in
sieve with 1 mm mesh. 2000 and ISO / IEC 17025: 6630 and methodology 99-B / C, as described in: Standard Method for
the Analysis of Water and Wastewater-APHA AWWA for the determination of pesticides, the 2534 standards were used
COVENIN -WPCF, issue No. 17 (1989). We considered 14 POC common of which were detected: aldrin, 4,4'-DDE and 4,4'-
DDT. The rest, recorded concentrations <0.02 mg / kg. The variance analysis of the results shows significant differences (p
0.05) from the mean concentrations of POC in different locations. It is concluded that POC is present in agricultural soils
Tucutunemo Valley, in varying concentrations, highlighting the locality 1, 24.8 mg / kg of aldrin, 4,4'-DDE and 4,4'-DDT,
although the results are below the regulation established by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, however, these values
could serve as a reference for future research. Moreover, the physical analysis of these soils, show that soils are fertile, with
silty-clay-loam, good percentage of organic matter and pH close to 7
