The Pesticide Leaching and Accumulation (PESTLA) model is used to evaluate the leaching of pesticide to the groundwater on a national and a European scale. A description of all processes and factors taken into account in version 3.4 of the PESTLA model is given. The hydrological data needed to run the PESTLA model are obtained using version 2.0 of the Soil Water Atmosphere Plant (SWAP) model. Guidance is given on the preparation of the PESTLA input files under DOS. A description is also given of the Graphical User Interface of PESTLA, which has been developed to make PESTLA more user friendly. One example is given which is based on the Dutch Standard Scenario. Instructions are given for installation of the PESTLA model.
