Publication Abstract

Pesticide Fate in the Environment: A Guide for Field Inspectors Gillespie, William, George Czapar, Aaron Hager, 2011  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS CR 2011-07    Full Text Available

The high cost of laboratory analysis often limits the number of samples that can be collected as part of a site investigation. Field inspectors must determine if collecting soil and plant tissue samples for analysis is justified. This document serves as a quick reference on the environmental fate of 35 common herbicides that field inspectors are likely to encounter. The use for each herbicide is described along with estimated herbicide persistence in the soil, water, and plant tissues. Understanding herbicide behavior in plants should help improve the information obtained from site investigations.
