The application of pesticides to cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) is an important issue that affects the water quality of the southern United States. Cotton receives as much as 7 kilograms per hectare of herbicide and 5 kilograms per hectare of insecticide (Gianessi and Puffer, ). 2) Determine which pesticides and degradates enter surface and ground water of the cotton belt and develop models to predict their occurrence, 3) Use knowledge gained from the Midcontinent Herbicide Project to examine the most critical geochemical processes that affect the fate, transport, and toxicity of cotton pesticides in surface and ground. Apr 05,  · Analysis of selected herbicide metabolites in surface and ground water of the United States surface water samples were collected at 64 sites in the Mississippi Embayment and analyzed in conjunction with the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program.

Under the provisions of the Mississippi Pesticide Law, the Bureau carries out various activities to register and inspect pesticide products, administer special types of pesticide registrations and exemptions, license dealers of restricted-use pesticides and conduct activities protecting the general public and the environment from possible pesticide contamination and misuse. The U.S. Geological Survey is conducting two studies to assess the environmental fate of herbicides used in cotton producing areas of the southeastern United States. The first study is evaluating surface-water quality on a regional basis and relating water quality to land use. The second study is examining the use of Best Management Practices to reduce off-site movement of agricultural. The U.S. Geological Survey analyzed pesticide and trace-element concentration data from the Hood River basin collected by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) from through to determine the distribution and concentrations of pesticides in the basin's surface waters. Instream concentrations were compared to (1) national and State water-quality standards established to. Pesticides available at retail and distribution outlets are regularly inspected by Bureau personnel for compliance with state and federal pesticide laws. Samples of products are collected and prepared for analysis at the Mississippi State Chemical Laboratory to determine if products meet their label guarantee.
