Man and synthetic and naturally occurring organic compounds ultimately interact with soil. It is essential that we have detailed knowledge about the movement, sorption, degradation, and dissipation that organic compounds undergo in soil if the contamination of natural resources is to be minimized. This special publication contains the papers presented at a symposium entitled “Sorption and Degradation of Agricultural Chemicals in Soils” that was held at the 1991 Annual Meetings of SSSA and ASA. The papers present state-of-the-art information regarding the relationships between sorption and degradation of anthropogenic compounds in soils. This needed information is critical to the development of models predicting the fate of organic chemicals in soils.
