Four researchers from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station put together this scientific poster on the National Pesticide Loss Database. Designed as a "look-up table for estimates of pesticide losses from farm fields in leachate and runoff," the National Pesticide Loss Database was intended "for use in conjunction with watershed models to target priority areas that may be in need of additional conservation practices." The Website contains a nice overview of the database, several dozen excellent color maps, and five tables depicting soil types and areas where leaching and runoff could exceed water quality thresholds for humans or fish. In addition, four databases (all related) may be accessed directly.
