Description

The patterns of pesticide occurrence in surface and ground waters are linked to agricultural practices and the product's susceptibility to leaching and runoff. Pesticide use information has historically been catalogued in relation to points of sale from agrichemical dealerships. In an effort to provide a wide audience with an understanding of these occurrences and patterns, an atlas was developed during 2006 that provided a web-based front end to the data. The atlas links pesticide calculations of pounds of active ingredients sold with geographic information and water monitoring data using Geographic Information System (GIS) software.
