Abstract

In this paper, we show how flow and transport models are introduced in the nutrient and pesticide management decision-making process. Examples are given of the use of flow and transport models in (i) field-scale nutrient and pesticide management; (ii) the identification and evaluation of fertilization and pesticide application practices supporting the implementation of regional-scale environmental management plans; and (iii) the registration of plant-protection products
