Abstract

Soil scientists and agricultural engineers have traditionally been interested in the behavior and effectiveness of agricultural chemicals (fertilizers and pesticides) applied to soils for enhancing crop growth, as well as in the effect of salts and other dissolved substances in the soil profile on plant growth. More recently, concern for the quality of the vadose zone and possible contamination of groundwater has provided a major impetus for studying solute transport in soils.
