Hi, I am building an LCA model on OpenLCA using ecoinvent 3.8, representing the agricultural growth of potatoes. I would like to model the spraying of fertilizers and pesticides on the soil. Not the mechanical action of it but the actual impact of adding chemicals to the soil. How could I do that please?

Thank you,

You find this in other ecoinvent processes, the pesticide e.g. is then emission to soil, more precisely the share of sprayed pesticide that is not on the plant etc.
