This report lists pesticide residues in cropland soil for 43 states and noncropland soil for 11 of these. Tables for each state give arithmetic means, range, number of samples collected and percent of sites with detectable residues. In addition, for selected pesticides and various states and state groupings, a frequency distribution of pesticide residues is presented. Use records for the year of sampling are summarized by the pesticide used, the percent of farms using it, the average application rate and the average amount applied. Comparisons are made between residue levels in different land use areas. The tons of DDT, aldrin and dieldrin residues present in cropland soil are estimated.
