The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Geological Survey, and The University of Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station developed a joint research effort to investigate and to model pesticide movement at a field site. The participants are sharing technical expertise and resources to develop a better understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes that affect leaching, to evaluate spatial and temporal variability, and to develop and test linked models for chemical transport and transformation. The paper describes the field design and presents preliminary pesticide leaching results obtained in the first year of the 5-year study.
