This reference book deals with the physico-chemical principles and processes controlling the behavior of herbicides in the soil environ-ment and gives a concise, critical account of techniques associ-ated with each subject matter. It summarizes and tabulates data on herbicides by class or group and provides predictive modeling of their behavior with validation of the models from field data. The in-formation makes the reader fully aware of environmental issues rel-evant to herbicide use in agriculture, and allows more reliable and efficient recommendation of herbicide uses. Summaries and con-clusions suggesting gaps in information and potential areas of fu-ture research are also featured. The text is designed for weed sci-entists, environmental chemists and engineers, soil scientists, and those who are responsible for recommending as well as regulating the use of herbicides in agriculture.
Soil Aspects Covered Include:

? Adsorption and bioavailability
? Diffusion and mass flow
? Transport in surface run-off
? Evaporation
? Dissipation
? Transformations
