    A reliable analytical method for the simultaneous determination of famoxadone and oxathiapiprolin dissipation kinetics as well as the metabolites of oxathiapiprolin (IN-E8S72 and IN-WR791) in tomato and soil was developed. We studied the dissipation of famoxadone and oxathiapiprolin in tomatoes grown using different kinetic curves in the area of Beijing in 2015 and 2016. Our results show that the most suitable model for two fungicides in 2015 and 2016 was first-order kinetic and second-order kinetic with the half-lives of 3.4 to 5.2 and 2.4 to 3.0 days, respectively. In addition, we applied the dynamic plant uptake model dynamiCROP and combined it with results from the field experiments to investigate the uptake and translocation of famoxadone and oxathiapiprolin in the soil–tomato environment. Modeled and measured results of two years fitted well with R2 values ranging from 0.8072 to 0.9221. The fractions of famoxadone and oxathiapiprolin applied during tomato cultivation that are eventually ingested by humans via residues in crop harvest were finally evaluated and found to be in the range of one part per thousand, that is one gram intake per kilogram applied.
