Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "use selected species in a field study to evaluate the efficacy of vegetative filter strips (VFS) and their most effective arrangements." Describes the experiment and the methods used, explaining that "runoff water was continuously collected at the bottom of the VFS. Three-minute grab samples were collected in 30 mL [mililiter] bottles for the first 30 minutes after the initiation of run-on and analyzed for bromide."

USGA Summary Points:A one-year rain event has been simulated twice on the VFS, once using irrigation and once using an artificial rainfall system. Preliminary bromide data indicates that bromide (and presumably pesticides) are being intercepted by the vegetative plots. 900 samples are currently being analyzed for pesticides. The pesticide application will be repeated next year using a 5-year storm scenario.
