An improved screening tool for predicting volatilization of pesticides applied to soils.


Pesticide volatilization and vapor drift can have adverse effects on nontarget, sensitive ecosystems and human health. Four approaches for pesticide volatilization screening based on Fick's Law were investigated. In each approach, vapor pressures or environmentally relevant partition coefficients were used to describe pesticide behavior in an agricultural… (More)
