USGA Summary Points:Concern is mounting about the use of MSMA for weed control in golf courses because it contains arsenic (As) which is suspected to be responsible for various cancers. Elevated concentrations of As have been found in soil and groundwater from Florida golf courses. Our study is designed to obtain direct measurements of volatilized arsenic, and of arsenic as dislodgeable residues, in percolate, grass clippings, and in soil following label-rate applications of MSMA to golf greens. Both methylation and decomposition of MSMA occurred in the soil after application. Following MSMA applications, lower concentrations of As were found in percolate from rootzone mixes containing peat. Nevertheless, As concentrations were substantially greater than in pre-application percolate.
