Abstract
Application of a pesticide to an agricultural crop results in some pesticide reaching both target (crop or soil) and nontarget (crop, soil, water, and air) areas. Subsequently, the pesticide will partition among and dissipate from all the environmental components. Initial pesticide distribution depends primarily upon application procedures, and partition'"' depends primarily on the nature of the pesticide (as expressed by vapor pressure and sorption constant). Distribution studies have demonstrated that a significant portion of many pesticides ultimately end in the air in addition to the targeted soil or crop area.
