Modifications, testing, and further development of the Pesticide Transport and Runoff (PTR) Model have produced the Agricultural Runoff Management (ARM) Model. The ARM Model simulates runoff, snow accumulation and melt, sediment loss, pesticide-soil interactions, and soil nutrient transformations on small agricultural watersheds. The report discusses the major modifications to and differences between the PTR and ARM Models. Instrumented watersheds in Georgia provided data for testing and refinement of the runoff, sediment and pesticide portions of the ARM Model. Comparison of simulated and recorded values indicated good agreement for runoff and sediment loss, and fair to good agreement for pesticide loss. Pesticides transported only by sediment particles were simulated considerably better than pesticides that move both in solution and on sediment. A sensitivity analysis of the ARM Model parameters demonstrated that soil moisture and infiltration, land surface sediment transport, pesticide-soil interactions, and pesticide degradation are the critical mechanisms in simulating pesticide loss from agricultural watersheds.
