    and dynamic soil processes are reviewed briefly with reference to the advantages and disadvantages of field and laboratory assays. It is concluded that accurate assessment of environmental hazards due to agrochemicals requires an integrated combination of data on their physicochemical characteristics and biological toxicity, with rigidly controlled laboratory assays and field tests concentrating on the key organisms and soil processes.
