EFFECTS OF AGRICULTURAL CHEMICALS IN THE ENVIRONMENT

Understanding Agricultural Chemicals in the Environment

The results of the use of agricultural chemicals and other methods associated with farming on the quality of sources and groundwater is well known; however, less is known about how those results may differ across different regional areas of the Country. Researchers at the U.S. Geological Study (USGS) are performing research on the transportation and destiny of agricultural chemicals in different agricultural configurations across the country using similar and constant technique and research designs. The research places signify significant agricultural configurations, such as irrigated different farming in the Western and maize and soy bean row farming in the Area and, therefore, results are appropriate throughout much of the Country.

Major Findings

Findings from this research have shown how ecological procedures and agricultural methods act together to determine the transportation and destiny of agricultural chemicals in the environment:

•             Hydrologic and landscape modifications—such as watering and improved ground water flow and drainage through floor empties and water flow and drainage ditches—change the scale and moment of discharge and agricultural substance transportation into and through the hydrologic system.

•             Agricultural chemicals, such as nitrogen substances, bug sprays, and pesticide breakdown products, commonly exist in rainfall, surface water, unsaturated-zone ground water, and groundwater in agricultural places.

•             Nitrate is the prevalent form of nitrogen existing in ground and surface waters of the agricultural watersheds analyzed.

•             Attenuation of nitrate in groundwater and the streambed happens to some degree in all watersheds. However, this attenuation is limited where (1) circulation rates are fast comparative to biochemical reaction rates, (2) the volume of water moving through sensitive areas is small, or (3) the supply of organic substrates is not sufficient to support scientific procedures.

•             In stream processes such as photosynthesis and breathing can modify nitrate plenty in surface water.

•             Differences in the levels and loads of nitrogen among sources indicate variations in the hydrologic features of these watersheds.

If your drinking water comes from a source near agricultural areas, there is always a need to do the routine test. Contact water companies such as Purity Bay, they have the most modern effective equipments for water treatment. They will also do the test for you for free.
