The subject is complex, as properties such as pesticide class, formulation, toxicity, dose, effective dose, persistence, volatility, water solubility, and soil adsorption all must be considered. This publication interprets those characteristics and explains the interaction of chemicals with surface and ground waters. Go to: B-6050 to order printed copies.
