Fate of systemic pesticides and Bt proteins. Schematic diagram on the fate of systemic pesticides (blue boxes) directly following their application (blue solid lines) and released from the coated seed (blue dotted lines). Fate of systemic pesticides and Bt proteins as part of plant material (green boxes in combination with black solid lines) and after degradation in water and soil (dotted black lines). Please note, that following uptake into non-target plants, the respective plant material (leafs) may be a source of exposure
