Abstract/Contents:"Fairways were simulated by establishing small plots of Tifway bermudagrass in a 5% slope. A system was developed at the front of the plots to collect, measure and subsample the runoff water from each for analyses of transported pesticides. The plots are treated with pesticides registered for use on golf course fairways. Results indicate that the fraction of pesticide transported in the runoff water is directly proportional to the water solubility of the pesticide, the time interval between treatment and first rainfall event, rainfall quantity and intensity, and the soil moisture content at first rainfall after treatment. It appears that the higher fractions of the water soluble pesticides are transported from the plots having a higher fraction of incoming water leaving as runoff. The research was initiated in 1993 and will be terminated in 1997."
