One of the major environmental issues in soil and water management is the presence of plastics. Awareness is growing that pollution by plastics must be prevented and recent research shows that it becomes a bigger issue especially in soil. However, little is known about the fate and impact of smaller plastic particles (micro- and nanoplastics or MNP). More knowledge about degradation, spread and exposure to MNP is needed to assess the impact on the environment and human health while a healthy soil is crucial. Knowledge about plastics in the soil is also still a young branch of science while the input sources of plastics into soil are manifold.
