USGA Summary Points:Light irrigation within 24 hours after pesticide application does not significantly reduce pesticide runoff. As the time between pesticide application and runoff even increases, the amount of pesticide in runoff decreases, but the more water soluble a pesticide, the slower the decrease with time. By removing clippings on the first mowing following a pesticide application, the potential for pesticide runoff can be dramatically reduced. However, the removed clippings contain a significant quantity of pesticide and must be handled properly to avoid creating a point-source pollution problem.
