The use of models in pesticide regulation is also forcing modellers to familiarise themselves with the procedures to work with a wide range of models and this has resulted in a number of studies to compare the performance of pesticide leaching models to measured field datasets (Garratt et al.
Since the 1980s, considerable effort has been put into the development of mathematical models as prediction tools for pesticide fate under field conditions and several pesticide leaching models of different complexity levels and input data requirements are currently available (Calvet 1995; Baer and Calvet 1999; Nicholls 1999).
