-A model for predicting pesticide fate in the crop root unsaturated soil zones: User[acute accent]s manual for release 2.0.
If more than one application period is possible, then the worst case situation based on simulation results with PRZM or similar models is used.
Estimates by PRZM and by LEACHM were more accurate than those by GLEAMS.
At the Institute for Plant Protection, University of Hohenheim, PRZM and LEACHM simulations are being compared against lysimeter leaching data.
The application of PRZM and other models for pesticide registration requirements also is important.
PRZM has 2 major components: hydrology and chemical transport.

Models have been developed using a variety of approaches, and they include PRZM developed by United States Environmental Protection Agency (Carsel et al.
