Project objectives:
To produce comparative environmental data sets detailing the fate and behaviour of pesticides in soil and water systems, identify the most applicable models 
of pesticide fate and their data requirements at different scales and to develop an integrated modelling system for research and advisory purposes.
Project Summary:
The project had four aspects:   
1 Evaluation of existing data, principally experimental data derived from experiments conducted in the preceding five years   
2 Evaluation of the existing models avaiolable at the time   
3 Assessment of the anticipated results from experimental work then being undertaken by the project team; evaluation of the minimum data requirements for 
modelling 4 Development of research models in a modular format which can be combined to assess more complex processes
