Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to "develop and test concise indicators of volatilization hazard that can be used by turf managers to determine the likely degree of health hazards associated with pesticide applications," and to "develop and test alternative models of turfgrass pesticide volatilization." States that "measurements have confirmed that volatilization of chemicals does indeed occur, resulting in possible health hazards to turf users. However, generalizations are difficult." Also, "the M2CM model was adapted to estimate volatilization losses from turf...although individual weeks or experiments are not always well-fitted by the model, mean volatilization losses for each chemical are relatively accurate." This three-year study began in 1998.

USGA Summary Points:Researcher is fairly pleased with model to predict volatilization potential. Although [Although] individual weeks were not well fitted by the M2CM model, the mean volatilization losses for each chemical were relatively accurate.
