Description

The effect of agricultural chemicals on groundwater quality continues to be a major concern. Although point source contamination is recognized as a significant factor, the extent of herbicide leaching from normal field use is not clear. Since herbicides are used on approximately 98% of the corn and soybeans acres in Iowa, it is important to understand herbicide movement under normal conditions.
