Abstract: Since world population is growing and expansion of arable land is limited, cropping intensity and yield must be increased. Pesticides are widely used as a solution, being used to control unwanted pests potentially damaging crop yield levels and wheat quality. However, it is widely known that pesticides are hazardous substances that could reach also non-target areas or living systems, such as wheat grown for consumption. Through this study we proposed to build a model that allow to simulate how used pesticides are uptake by wheat and which compartments bioaccumulate them in higher yields.
