This paper describes a method for calculation of the pollution of river Vardar, as a result of herbicides application in the soil of Skopje- Polog region. The method is based on fuzzy inference system, in which we defined its input variables - the quantity of the applied herbicide, the period of its application and the percentage of the contaminated area; and its output variable - the quantity of herbicide in the river. This method analyses the application of two common herbicides - atrazine and metalochlore, and we used data obtained from the Ministry of environment for the last 3 years. We have used fuzzy rule base and defuzzification of the output variable. The contribution of this paper are the obtained values for the chemicals in the Vardar river (during the continuous time interval), values that are not measured neither from the Ministry of environment, nor from any NGO. Using our model - we can also make a prediction for these concentrations in the water for the next years.
