GROUND-WATER SENSITIVITY AND VULNERABILITY TO PESTICIDES, BERYL-ENTERPRISE AREA, IRON WASHINGTON, AND BEAVER COUNTIES, UTAH
Mike Lowe, Janae Wallace, Rich Emerson, Anne Johnson, and Rich Riding
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recommended that states develop Pesticide Management Plans for four agricultural chemicals—alachlor, atrazine, metolachlor, and simazine—herbicides used in Utah in the production of corn and sorghum, and to control weeds and undesired vegetation (such as along right-of-ways or utility substations). This 28-page report and two accompanying plates are intended to be used as part of these Pesticide Management Plans to provide local, state, and federal government agencies and agricultural pesticide users with a base of information concerning sensitivity and vulnerability of agricultural pesticides in the Beryl-Enterprise area, Iron, Washington, and Beaver Counties, Utah.
