Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Identify by survey golf practices and habits which lead to exposure from dislodged pesticides. 2. Quantify the amount of various pesticides dislodged, volatilized, and transferred during play. 3. Characterize the risk incurred by pesticide exposure while playing golf." States that "an assessment of volatilization of ethoprop, chlorpyrifos, and isofenphos applied to golf course fairways was made June 5-7, 2000, at Banyon Golf Course in Palm Beach County...Appreciable air-bourne pesticide residue was observed over a three-day measurement period...There was a general trend for decreasing concentrations of all three pesticides over time, but mid-day increases in concentration generally were evident." This three-year study began in 1998.

USGA Summary Points:The amount of the four pesticides that was lost by volatilization greatly exceeded that lost by leaching or clipping removal. There is a diurnal nature to volatilization losses. The losses are greatest during the mid-day hours. Products varied in their volatilization losses; however, they did not pose any health risks. Incorporating stabilized organic polymer (SOP) into the rootzone of a USGA green reduced leaching losses of fenamiphos and fenamiphos metabolite by 88 and 83%, respectively.
