Abstract
(English)
In Italy suitable standard scenarios for pesticide risk assessment based on computer models are lacking. In this paper we examine the use of the VARLEACH model to assess the potential danger of ground-water pollution by six herbicides (alachlor, atrazine, cyanazine, linuron, simazine and terbuthylazine) which are used to protect irrigated (maize) and non-irrigated (sorghum) crops in the Po Main, one of the most important agricultural lands in Italy. Two extreme scenarios are taken: red worst case (sandy soil) and real best case (clay loam soil).
