    Abstract

    PestLCI is a new, modular model for estimation of pesticide emissions from field application to the different environmental compartments. It calculates emission fractions to the air, water, soil and groundwater compartments of the environment based on generally available information about: Type and time of application, crop species and development stage, and properties of the pesticide active ingredients. The required physical-chemical information on the 69 organic pesticides approved for field-use in Denmark is included in the model as a data base. So is the relative leaf area for 28 common European crops on 2-5 development stages together with meteorological data for 12 stations in Denmark. The use and capability of the model is illustrated through Danish case studies but the modular structure of the model will allow its adaptation to conditions valid for other regions.
