The possible contamination of groundwater by the insecticides acephate and methamidophos was assessed using the behavior assessment model (BAM) and the groundwater pollution-potential model (GWP). The dissipation coefficients of the two insecticides in two soils (Annei silt loam and Pingchen silt clay loam) at different moisture contents (50 and 100% field capacity) and soil temperatures (20 and 30 degrees C) were studied by determining the degradation and adsorption of each insecticide in the… CONTINUE READING
