Abstract/Description:
Discusses selected pesticides and their toxicity, use in the estuarine drainage areas, and limitations. 28 pesticides, including herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, miticides, and nematicides are examined. A methodology for assessing toxicity is included, as is some discussion of crop patterns, factors affecting pesticide use, pesticide use patterns, and more. Suggestions for how the data can be used and concluding comments are included. Tables, maps, and charts. Much information about pesticides in general is appended, including common names of pesticides, pesticide use estimation methodologies, physical properties of pesticides, environmental hazard rating system, pesticides applied to selected crops, area of crops in estuarine drainage areas, and agricultural use and toxicity normalized use for 28 pesticides by estuarine drainage area, average annual pesticide application rates by crop by state, agricultural use and toxicity normalized use for 28 pesticides by major crop by estuarine drainage area, and intensity of agricultural use and toxicity normalized use for 28 pesticides by major crop by estuary drainage area. A bibliography is attached.
