USGA Summary Points:The effect of plot size on the amount of pesticide in surface runoff from bermudagrass is being determined using four plot sizes ranging from 40 to 5,000 ft2. Preliminary results from two plot sizes (360 and 1,600 ft2) suggest that plot size does not significantly affect the percentage of applied pesticide in runoff. Small-plot (360 ft2) studies investigating the effects of two mowing heights and two warm-season grass species on pesticide runoff suggest that the relative importance of these factors depends upon the physicochemical properties of the pesticide in question. The wide range of pesticides used in these studies should aid in the refinement of simulation models used to predict pesticide runoff from warm-season turf.
