Using models to identify cost-effective pest management programs that minimize groundwater pollution



Using models to identify cost-effective pest management programs that minimize groundwater pollution



New York' s Food and Life Sciences Quarterly 18(1-2): 5-8



Three interacting models: a simulation of insect population dynamics, describing the impact of a pesticide on pests and on crop damage; a model of pesticide movement through the unsaturated zone in the soil; and a weather simulator, were used to determine the trade-off between cost effectiveness and groundwater pollution in a control programme for Leptinotarsa decemlineata.
