No pesticide has been studied as extensively as atrazine. The study of atrazine has contributed to our general understanding of the behavior of pesticides in soils. New knowledge and concepts were evaluated, such as atrazine adsorption kinetics, desorption hysteresis, and preferential flow. Corresponding conceptual models were also proposed to explain the behavior of atrazine in soils. Atrazine adsorption-desorption is the major process affecting atrazine behavior in soils and is mainly… CONTINUE READING
